1. Love eating fresh, organic vegetables
2. Don't want to spend a fortune on said vegetables, and
3. Have access to some patch of dirt, no matter how small
the question becomes why don't you have your own vegetable garden?
Vegetable gardening may seem intimidating, like the first time you made a souffle or baked bread from scratch. But if you're a foodie who loves vegetables, it's time to get out of the kitchen and reconnect with nature. Growing your own vegetables is not difficult, you just need to muster up your courage and listen to some friendly advice to Get Growing. That's where we come in. Starting on December 1, we will be posting a monthly series on vegetable gardening. Nothing complicated, so easy that you will soon be growing vegetables despite yourself.
Our partner in this endeavor is Daphne's Dandelions. Based in Boston, Daphne is the über-blogger for vegetable gardening. She will be helping all you Yankees with know-how for gardens in the North. We will provide monthly tips for those in warmer climates.
Part 1 of the Get Growing series will be posted on December 1st: Here at Vegetable Matter we'll be talking about growing peas and other vegetables that love the cold weather (well, the Southern version of cold). Daphne will be discussing garden planning and seed selection.
Look, humans have been growing their own vegetables for thousands of years without the aid of books or the internet so how hard can it be, right? Stop yearning for our garden and plant your own. We hope to inspire you, and we'll be here to help.
