The secret to success with your vegetable garden is good planning. Using dedicated vegetable beds and deciding in advance what you’re going to grow where makes gardening simpler, more efficient, and more productive.

Growing in dedicated beds reduces soil compaction, helps to simplify crop rotation, and makes weeding and protecting your crops a snap.

In this video we discuss the benefits different styles of beds offer and demonstrate how to position your vegetables for a better harvest.

    I was curious how to use the watering tubes if you are using a barrier. Can they go under ground or on top of the weed barrier? (A cloth type not plastic barrier)?

    Wonderful garden you have there. I am in NC (union county) and want to try my first small garden this coming season. Your video has really inspired me.
    May God bless you and yours.?

    Geez! It's videos like this that make me wonder why I garden. I should buy a house near you instead! Those are serious tomatoes! Was the one from a super bloom? It looked like it might be. Awesome production Rick and great explanation on the watering and staking! Never hear of tomato twine! Good stuff to know! I give this video an incredible hulk green thumbs up!?

    Thank you for the wonderful tips. This will be my first time planting a raised garden. I normally buy plants already started in large containers which is expensive. ?

    I recycle polystyrene spools, that originally held wire for computer components into birdhouses. I make two styles: One gets a screw eye in the "roof" for hanging, and the other gets a dowel in the "floor" to sit into a hold drilled in the top of a post. the main modification is two plywood discs about 3/16" thick, painted black, and attached with nuts and bolts for the roof and floor of the house.?

    I love your videos, there is always some little gem I pick up from them!
    I personally try to do raised beds that are not restricted by building wooden edges around. I simply pick up soil from where the paths will be that year and pile it on where the plants will grow. This has saved my early-spring seedlings a couple of times when there was too much rain and the paths were flooded. I am very conscious of rotating my crops, so at the end of the season I cover the entire plot with well-rotted horse manure and leave it to over-winter. In the spring I make new paths and new beds and try not to disturb the soil (I try to do the no-dig method as much as possible, since I believe there are different organisms at different depths in the soil that shouldn't be disturbed by digging and turning the soil over; the manure gets dug in by earthworms throughout the season as well as getting the root vegetables out of the soil once they are ready for harvest). This way I can utilize the minerals that are in the soil where the paths were in the following year. 🙂 Let me know your thoughts on my method. :)?

    I may sound silly but, I'd like to ask: is there a way for carrots, onions and other similar vegetables to reproduce themselves on their own and how?
    Some links please you are bored to write to me. Thank you.?

    does he app give you a warning when you plan planting something together that doesn't get along? and does it give you suggestions on companion planting? :)?
