Planning for a Spring Vegetable Garden

Now that winter is upon the Veggie-Bed (Plant Hardiness Zone 8a) I have starting planning for a spring vegetable garden. 49605995_998896233641786_3666991928559271936_nThis year a decision was made to shut down the old vegetable garden areas for a season and create new beds. After recording the sunlight times and location throughout the growing seasons, I decided on the location of the new site. The area chosen will receive optimal sunlight and is close to a water source.

“The best site for a vegetable garden should incorporate the following: At least six hours of sunlight daily, good drainage and air circulation, and a level location with loose, rich soil. There should also be a nearby source of water, and ideally, convenient access to tool storage and equipment (diynetwork.com) [1]”.
