How to Start a Garden with Vegetables You Already Have

There are many people who start their gardens around this time of year. If you have never started one, it is never too late to start. You might be thinking that considering everything going on with the world that it would not be a bad idea if you could cut down on some grocery shopping by producing some vegetables yourself. Getting seeds might be daunting and to be honest, they can be hard to get going. So, what can you do to start a productive garden? Ripple Creek wants to help you get your garden started the right way!

When it comes to your garden you want to first decide where it is going to go. Are you going to plant in pots, a raised garden bed, or the ground? This is something that you must consider regarding your climate and the animals around your home. You may want to bring them in come fall and winter to keep your produce growing. From there you want to decide what soil you want. Of course, you want one that is organic. There are different soils types depending on the garden type that you decide. They have potting soil, raised bed soil, and others. So, you want to make sure that you do your research and to find out what will be the best for you.

When it comes to your garden, you might have known that you were throwing away the parts of the vegetables that can regrow if you just put them in water. If you have ever had a head of lettuce you probably cut off the butt-end and throw it away. If you were to just put the butt-end in water, by the next day you will start to see it growing back. Vegetables like potatoes, sweet potatoes, lettuce, carrots, radishes, garlic, onion, celery, and the like will all grow back if you put them in water and then transfer them to soil. This means that you do not even have to get seeds and you can make sure that you are producing results.
