Weekend Gardener: Steps for Planting a Vegetable Garden


If you're beginning to plant your vegetable gardens, there are a couple of things to remember.

Jayla Fry with the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension was on BVTM Friday to fill us in.

Jayla streets that amending your soil with compost or organic matter is very important. By doing this, you will break up clay soils that will allow more water to drain through so that your plants won't become water logged. If you have sandy soils, this process helps hold on to the moisture.

The next step is planting. Jayla says there are some things that can be transplanted from a plant and some can be seeded.

The follow up side to the process is adding mulch, which will help conserve water and cut down on the number of weeds in your vegetable garden.
