Prepare the bed in time

Home grown vegetables taste just as good. Anyone who tries that will be amazed. Find out here how to create a vegetable patch.

Prepare the bed in time
Tomatoes, lettuce, carrots, cucumbers and zucchini are most common in our gardens. But other vegetables are also becoming increasingly popular. If you have enough space in the garden, you should give it a try. If you want to plant a vegetable patch, you have to pay attention to a few things to get the best results. Simply putting it in the garden soil is not always so tolerable. You have to consider a few important points when growing vegetables. For example, you should make sure that you prepare the bed in good time. The rule is that it should be ready by the beginning of March, as the floor has three to four weeks to settle.

Create a vegetable patch
With this knowledge you can start. First, the place where the bed is to be created must be dug out and loosened. The earth has to be finely crumbly. You absolutely have to remove weeds and root remains, because they have lost nothing in the vegetable patch. Then there is plenty of compost and lime on the bed. Both must be worked well into the earth. Up to 5 liters per m² must be approximate. Now the bed has to be covered with mulch film and the weeks in question have to rest. Then it can start sowing.
