Edible Gardening

Why should you grow your own vegetables and fruit? For starters, you'll save money on your grocery bills. Of course, you'll also know exactly what you are feeding your family -- and you'll have fun doing something together that is easier than you think. But if you're a beginner, you need to decide what to grow, where to grow it, and how to tend to it. Start with information that encompasses the basics and more, giving you a great start on your way to reaping the rewards of your own vegetable garden. If you don't have as much space as you'd like, try vegetable gardening in containers -- or on a doorstep, deck, patio, or balcony. Our free vegetable garden plans take the guesswork out of where and how to place crops. If you've mastered the art of growing your own vegetables but aren't sure when to gather different types, turn to the harvest guide, which can help you with tips on fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Speaking of fruits, if you haven't considered growing your own, get going with information on how to grow your own blueberries.
