What will you plant in your garden?

To have an efficient and environmentally friendly vegetable garden, make sure to avoid waste. It’s better to start small and grow over the years as your needs change. Plant vegetables and herbs that your family loves and that won’t get lost. Also, be sure not to plant more plants than you need for your consumption. It is unlikely that your family will need 12 tomato plants!

Not all vegetables and herbs are created equal, some are more difficult to grow than others. Be sure to plant varieties that suit your type of gardener.
