Plan your garden and budget before planting your crops, it’ll help you reap the best harvest possible. Make a decision on:
If you are very new, start small. Don’t expect it to be perfect, having a small manageable garden like a plant or two will keep you rolling. Generally we can harvest at least 400 grams of vegetables per week from a small home vegetable garden depending on the crops.
List down what you would like to grow and the duration it will take to harvest. The list will help you plan your garden better.
Planting a good variety will prevent your dinners from being boring. For example you decided to plant lettuce and use up all the seeds in the packet you bought, three weeks later there will be lots of lettuce ready for harvest. So, unless you are a big fan of lettuce you will end up eating it every day and night.
For variety, consider planting a mixture of vegetable, herbs, edible flowers, medicinal plants and/or fruit trees.
