Preparing A Vegetable Garden From The Ground Up

by Stephanie Suesan Smith on November 16, 2010

Want to learn to garden?  My first attempt at gardening ended up in failure.  The weeds took over and squeezed the vegetables out.  I was very frustrated by this waste of good seed, time, and money.  I became a master gardener and spend a lot of time helping other people avoid or overcome problems in their garden. I wrote a book to help other people garden.

It is very good to get rid of weeds as they take the food of your real harvest.

Hi Stephanie,
It’s nice to know that you have a green thumb. I admire those who can garden effortlessly and grow different plants, flowers, vegetables, fruits beautifully. I have tried taking care of tomatoes, onions, and chilis. Sure, they grew to a certain extent, but they didn’t last long. I think I may have a green thumb that turns yellow and makes the plants wither and die, LOL 🙂
