Q.successful vegetable garden design

Zone 6 | JenJM added on August 3, 2012 | Answered

Okay I would like to hear from lots of people on this. . . if you have a successful vegetable garden, can you please share your best hints with me? Especially in the layout? Hours of sun? Compost? Plastic or straw between rows? Weed management, etc. I live in CT, so I guess people who live in zone 6 would probably have the best answers for me. I have a decent garden, but I see others as I drive around that just seem so much nicer than mine. . .

The grass is always greener... I bet people think the same about yours as well but you just do not see it. :)

This group of articles might help you:

I personally prefer straw. It seems to work better for weeds and lets the water through nicely. Plus, no clean up needed at the end of the year with it. And I prefer raised beds. Helps keep things neater and the beds dry out faster so you can plant sooner.
