Decide On What To Grow  

There are so many vegetables and fruits to choose from but you need to think of the climate and what you enjoy eating. Only grow things you’ll use and enjoy. Start off small if you’re unsure and slowly increase in what you grow. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself.  

Prepare The Soil  

Ensure your soil is perfect for what you’re growing. One of the things to do is clear all weeds.

How To Layout Your Kitchen Garden
