Useful Facts About Growing Vegetables
It’s important to be aware of the various gardening don’ts in order to protect the vegetable garden you’ve worked so hard to create.
Firstly, if you use pesticides in your vegetable garden then you shouldn’t be growing vegetables in the first place. They’re dangerous and it’s best to steer clear of all chemicals, even organic ones.
Secondly, if you do use pesticides you need to make sure the application method is appropriate for your vegetables. For example, you should never apply chemicals to your tomatoes unless they’re being damaged by the weather.
Instead, try to find a way to prevent the tomatoes from entering the soil around other plants. It’s very common for the chemicals to wash into the soil and damage other plants, so it’s better to use something non-toxic and apply it in a gentle manner.
Don’t use toxic chemicals
Lastly, don’t use toxic chemicals if you’re trying to save a vegetable. For example, instead of picking the tomato, save it by spraying the seeds with water and an organic substance. It’s better than having it rot in the ground because the soil then becomes poisonous to the vegetable.
Growing your own vegetables is great, but they can be vulnerable to all sorts of problems. Here are a few tips to keep your vegetable garden in top shape.
* Avoid turning your vegetable garden over, unless you’re rotating crops or breeding. Rotating crops work because the plants have less exposure to the wind and therefore will be less susceptible to pests and disease.
* Make sure you’re giving your vegetables the right amount of sunlight. The sun’s rays cause two major problems for vegetables. They’re strong and they’re direct. These two problems combine to make the plants weaker. Instead, try to give them more shade.
* Give your vegetables the right amount of water. You can over-water them or under-water them. Either way, you should make sure the water has thoroughly soaked deep into the ground.
* Make sure you’re managing your vegetables with regards to soil and pest management. Your vegetables need good pest management in order to resist diseases. Make sure you take care of pest management. If you do, then you’ll keep your vegetables healthy.

All About Cabbage Family Plants
Cabbage (Brassica) family plants make great crops because they’re fairly tolerant of most soils. While some varieties are a bit more watery than others, most brassica plants are water-loose. They can take at most one inch of water per week. They’re great vegetables for growing in clay soils that otherwise get saturated with water. They also do well in sandy soils. They’re good for growing in the garden because they produce a lot of the following crops: Turnips, Swedes, Parsley, Brussels sprouts, Kale, Mustard greens, Turnips, and Carrots.
Cabbage family plants do well in container gardens and raised beds. The raised bed method has been proven to give a better crop when compared to planting in the garden. You can grow the plants 12 to 18 inches apart and to keep them contained, build a fence around the edge of the bed to separate each group.
Cabbage family plants and radishes are the two most popular container plants. Radishes also do well in containers. They’re the vegetables that make the tastiest root crops. Radishes are great plants to grow when you’re lacking root crops in your diet. They also make a great flower crop.
Other Cabbage Family Plants: Caraway, Parsley, Coriander, Oregano, Fennel, Dill, Sage, Scented Geranium, and Dandelion, Basil, Fennel, Garlic, and Garlic Chives are all herbs that also do well when grown in containers. Forcing your Cabbage family plants into containers helps them get the needed moisture that they need.
Other vegetable plants like potatoes also do well when grown in containers. They’re best grown in the garden where they get a bit of sunlight and in a soil that drains well. They don’t like the soil to be too wet. However, they’re also good in containers. If you live in a dry area, you can grow your potatoes in the garden. Don’t plant them too close to the house as the potatoes will get dependent on the house’s moisture. They can also be grown in a small area outside if you have no yard space. Or, you can choose a small pot and plant it in the garden. It’s great because you can move it around to find the best location in the garden.
