Starting A Garden

Starting new garden

Anonymous added on August 12, 2015 | Answered

I would like to create a garden for harvest throughout the growing season. I would like to know, if managed properly, if there was value, potential harm and/or a protocols to follow for creating a garden in the fall vs spring? If equal, I would just prefer to take on the task of preparing the area, while I have motivation! Additionally, I would appreciate any tips on constructing a garden designed to be efficient. I am leaning towards a 10x10 because it seems to be pretty straight forward.

First, I would suggest raised beds, as they are easier to maintain and crops generally perform well in them. In your area, the use of cold frames, row covers and the like may be helpful too in prolonging the growing season.
