Growing vegetables is something you can do almost anywhere. You don’t have to live on a farm out in the country. You don't have to own much, or any land. You can use a friend's or neighbor's backyard, a community garden plot, or a vacant lot if your city or town has an urban farming program (more and more do because they are recognizing the need to build up local food production) Either way, you can use your space to grow fresh and healthy vegetables which can earn you a surprising amount of income.
Growing Vegetables for Beginners
Even if you are just getting started, growing a garden doesn’t take much skill. Ultimately, the seeds and plants know what to do—you just need to be there to support them with a little bit of care.
One of the best pieces of advice that new garden growers can heed is to start small. You can plant fast-growing vegetables that will provide you with excellent results very quickly. Keeping it simple with just a couple of plants ensures that you don’t get in over your head and that you like what you are doing.
