Growing your own vegetables isn’t hard. The first step is to determine the location; most started in areas that receive at least 8 hours of sunlight per day. Next you’ll want to make sure you have a handy source for water. Then comes the fun part, determining what vegetables you want to grow. Part of this process is knowing how much space they will need, how long they will be growing, and the best time of the year to get them started.
Depending on where you live, vegetables can be grown at different times. Some areas of the country only have one season, while others have multiple seasons. Knowing the proper planting time will help maximize your growing space and ensure a rewarding experience.
