FarmlandsLivingBeginners Plan for an efficient vegetable garden for your farmhouse

Growing your own veggies and fruits all from the scratch is fun, courageous and rewarding; all at once. You can’t expect good returns every single time, but the wait to see the beautiful harvest teaches you patience, determination, and problem-solving. Think of having that delicious bite of a homegrown tomato which you have harvested along with your kids or family or friend or maybe an outsider’s help; but that hard work and that patience definitely repay in the form of purity, satisfaction and an experience. So here is your guide to dip your hands into that mud and work towards an amazing achievement.

Beginners start towards growing the delicious bites:
For some reason, everyone thinks gardening is simply digging a hole and sticking your plants in the garden, but there is much more to consider when starting your own vegetable garden. Here are a few tips and tricks you should keep in mind while planning one for your farmhouse.

Choosing an apt location to start with:
Locate a location with full sun as most of the veggies and fruits need proper sunlight for more than 6 hrs a day. Though some root vegetables and herbs need partial sunlight but most of them need full sunlight. Also fencing your space is important to protect your plants from animals.

Another factor while choosing the location is good fertile soil and availability of water.

Creating Garden space:

Well, the golden rule for beginners is “Start small”. Don’t get overwhelmed by the fact that you have a farm and you will start organing farming and will only consume what you produce. No, the start has to be small, to fail, to observe, to learn and then to go big.

The next is to decide the space, whether you want to start with containers, raised beds or the traditional rows. Whatever you opt for, just remember to have enough space in between rows or beds so that you can reach your plants to weed and harvest without stepping on any of them.

Also, Don’t forget to add compost to your soil for the best results.

Choosing vegetables:

The first thing to do is make a list of what your family likes. No one likes eggplant, don’t grow it. Start with easy vegetables and with good-quality seeds. A few vegetables that grow easily are lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, radish, peppers, beet, coriander and mint. You can also mix in some colorful flower plants like marigolds to discourage pets and attract pollinators. They also increase the soil quality with time.

Just don’t forget that you need not stretch too much on the first go. Start small as we said earlier.

Lettuce, broccoli and peas grow in cooler weather while tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers are summer vegetables. Be cautious what to sow when.

Plant longer trees in a direction that it doesn’t hinder the sunlight reaching your shorter plants. The herbs can be planted in areas with less sun and they are far less expensive and much better than store-bought ones.

Most veggies are annuals and thus locations can be changed every single time with learnings and research but if you are planning for perennials like asparagus, provide
them with a permanent location.

Choose stagger plantings.

You surely don’t need all your lettuce seeds harvested at the same time. Better sow some and ripe some. Again repeat the process depending upon the requirement and days of maturity of the seed.

Watering your vegetable garden:

This is a little tricky as you are not sure how much is just enough for your plants. Keep soil moist (but not too wet) and continue to care for plants. If they get less water they wont survive but if they get extra water they are not going to do super awesome. The best practice is not watering all day every day your plants but deep watering them every alternate day or depending upon the soil, if it’s dry and needs water then do the honors.



This is your reward time. The time you have put in so much effort, the time you have been waiting for, the harvest time. See your homegrown tomatoes at their peak vibrant hue, plump peas and fresh herbs. Smell the success and taste the yummiest vegetables of all the time.
