So you don't have a green thumb

So you don’t have a green thumb but you want to grow your own vegetables, well lets help you do that! 

Here are a few steps before actually planting:


1. Take inventory of the space you have in your home and what you’re willing to use of that space for gardening. 

ie: balcony, backyard, front garden, planter boxes, deck, etc 

2. Know what season is best for certain fruits and vegetables (we’ll be talking about the Fall harvest season since its quickly approaching 

(beans, beets, turnips, brussel sprouts, collard greens, green onion, lettuce, peas, radicchio) 

3. Decide which you’d like to grow and go to your local nursery to either get a starter plant or seeds from scratch! Talk with someone there about the space your planting it in, sunlight, and the right soil.

Benefits of starting your own garden: 

  • Another form of exercise (gardening is a lot of work depending on your space and how many things you have planted). 

  • Access to fresh veggies/herbs/fruit and you know exactly where its coming from, YOUR garden. 

  • Pesticide free 

  • Natural stress reliever by immersing yourself in a personal project 

Happy gardening!
