So you want to know how to grow a vegetable garden! It's an exciting thought. There are several ways you can go about it. Ask yourself a few key questions first. What kind of space do you have? Do you have a yard area where you can plant directly into the ground? Or is your outdoor space a deck or patio like mine was in Key Largo?

Then, what is your budget? When we first started gardening, my budget was smaller than a shoestring! I bought the cheapest soil I could find, my neighbor gave me pots and I ordered the seeds online. And everything went out on our deck.

Regardless what you have and your budget, confirm your chosen area gets at least 6 hours of sunlight each day. If not, can you help your garden along with grow lights?

Then, decide how you want to build (the articles below will help you make this decision). Container Garden? Raised Garden? Directly into ground? Vertical garden? SO many choices!

Let’s get started. Shall we?
