La Canada, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/24/2015 -- Home gardening has, for the last few generations, been almost exclusively about the cultivation of beauty. Keen gardeners have looked toward manicuring their lawns, eliminating weeds and cultivating beautiful flowers. But this fails to utilize the awesome potential of the garden as a place to grow delicious fruits and vegetables that can supply a family with all-natural goodness. Pioneer Dad, a website dedicated to providing useful tips and information for sustainable urban living, has just published a new editorial explaining how people can create a flourishing vegetable garden in their yard.
The article, entitled, "10 Steps For Starting Your Home Vegetable Garden", includes a step by step guide to converting some or all of a landscape into a vegetable garden, including instantly actionable advice that can set people on the road to growing their own vegetables regardless of their gardening experience.
The guide explains how to best pick the right area of the garden and how to best select and prepare the soil for vegetable growth. It then describes both summer and winter vegetables that can be rotated to keep the soil productive all year round. They also detail how to make garden space work harder by using vertical supports, and how to best cultivate everything that can be grown there.
A spokesperson for Pioneer Dad explained, "We are passionate gardeners and we believe a vegetable area is essential for making the most of any garden. We have created this step-by-step guide to encourage others to start growing their own food at home. We included easy to follow tips essential to successful vegetable growing, how to get it right the first time and how to best harvest and store the fruits of your labor. All in all, we believe this to be an exciting project, and look forward to helping more people than ever give garden-to-table home vegetable gardening a try."
