1. Put up a fence so kids don’t clip your plants profits.
2. Make and use compost from your garden to nourish the soil.
3. Ensure the soil drains or water exits. You don’t want your roots sitting in standing water.
4. For smaller carrots and potatoes, just plant the seeds closer.
Soil density helps control plant growth also.
Softer soil yields larger carrots and potatos.
5. Pair up your plants. For example – Tomatoes protect
asparagus from beetles and onions protect carrots
from flies, etc.
6. Trees always cool ground temps by making shade. Roots can
destroy so think ahead.
7. Raise your bed. Higher ground in raised beds keep you from
having to lean for one but also keeps your roots above the
pollution that be in the ground. Homemade compost will help
fill and give nutrients to the fill dirt.
8. Old leaves or grass clippings on the dirt above roots helps preserve moisture in the ground by creating a
layer from the suns hot and drying rays.
