I’ve never done a vegetable garden before.
I’ve only ever raised vegetables in my kitchen.
And I know what you’re thinking: “Oh my god, this is soooooo much fun!”
If only there was a way to get vegetables growing in your backyard or in a greenhouse.
I guess there is.
And now there is!
There are so many great vegetable gardens online that are so easy to build and maintain that you can have some fun and raise a bunch of veggies.
But how do you actually grow vegetables?
The answer is surprisingly simple, and I’m going to share it with you in this post.
Let’s start by figuring out how to grow vegetables in your kitchen.
To start, you’ll need some basic tools.
You can buy them online, but I’m assuming you already have some.
First up is a pot, which is a little more expensive than a kitchen utensil.
You will need a pot with a lid.
I found a small plastic cup to be a good starter, and if you’re not sure what you have, check out this list of common pot sizes.
The pot can hold a few cups of water.
If you can’t find one, buy a plastic bowl for $1.50.
You’ll need a shovel, which can be bought at any hardware store.
You might also want to consider buying a bucket for $10.
You need a small, circular dish towel.
The more the merrier.
There’s really no need to go through the trouble of making a dish towel, as you’ll probably have a lot of food left over for the next few days.
Next up, you need a vegetable bed.
You could buy a container of some sort, but this tutorial shows how to make a nice, sturdy, and inexpensive bed.
I bought a big, old plastic pot with some holes in it.
I put a layer of food scraps, shredded cabbage, and a layer or two of fresh, chopped vegetables in it, and covered it with some paper towels.
The bed I bought is made out of plastic sheets and some kitchen scraps.
To keep the vegetables from drying out, I put some vegetable seeds in the top of the bed, and then I used the bottom of the pot to soak up some water.
You’re going to need a dish, a towel, and some potting soil.
You don’t want to use anything that is too sticky, or it’ll drip out all over the place.
You also don’t have to buy any food grade soil.
The soil you buy can be anything, and the best option is probably a soil from the garden center.
If there’s not a garden center near you, check with your local grocery store.
If not, you can buy soil from Amazon.
There are some pretty good soil recommendations out there.
After you’ve bought all of that, it’s time to get started.
This is going to be the most labor-intensive part of the process.
The first thing you need to do is remove the vegetable bed and put it in the freezer.
You want to leave the lid off so the vegetables don’t drip out.
To do this, remove the plastic lid and place the pot on a baking sheet.
Then put the lid on the pot and place it in a freezer bag.
You should be able to get your hands on at least two bags.
Next, get the pot out of the freezer and put some of the food scraps on top of it.
You’ve got a few bags of scraps to use for some of your vegetables.
You now have a good pile of food that you’ll be able use for the rest of the year.
Now, the next step is to start growing vegetables.
The process of growing vegetables is really a lot like raising a cow.
You basically put some seeds in, put them in the ground, and let the soil grow.
Once the soil is well established, you don’t need to worry about it drying out.
It just grows, and your plants grow.
You just want to let the plant grow enough so it can be ready for harvest.
I’m still not sure how much water a pot will need to hold, but in my experience, you shouldn’t need more than half a cup of water to grow a plant.
This will help you keep the plants alive during the winter months when you don.t have much time to wait for the soil to cool off.
If your soil is too dry, your plants won’t get enough nutrients.
You do need some water to keep your plants alive in case they get thirsty during the day.
You still need to give your plants a good feed, and you’ll want to keep the soil moist.
You have a few options here.
You may decide to put the plants in a pot on top.
That way, you won’t need as much water to water your plants, but
