Grow More Food at Home: The Urban Gardening Series

Grow More Food at Home: The Urban Gardening Series

Introducing the Urban Gardening Series
Today I wanted to introduce a new series in response to world events that are touching many homes here in Canada. The other day while shopping I saw a medium sized tomato with a price of 3$ each and a head of cauliflower over 10$ . World events have led to fast and sharp increases in the cost of groceries.

I hope through the Urban Gardening series that both new and experienced gardeners are able to have a successful growing season without having to invest a lot. Especially for new gardeners success helps you want to continue and garden into the future.

Beginning Gardening Series #1: Best Location for a Vegetable Garden

Beginning Gardening Series #1: Best Location for a Vegetable Garden

In the first video of my series for beginning gardeners, I talk about the best location for a vegetable garden.

If you shop on Amazon, you can support OYR simply by clicking this link (bookmark it too) before shopping:

These are the factors to consider when choosing a location for a vegetable garden:
1) Look for a location that gets 6 to 8 hours of direct sun.
2) Avoid locations where soil is likely contaminated, especially if growing in native soil. If in doubt, have the soil tested for contaminants. It’s also a good idea to test the soil fro nutrients, organic matter, and pH. This can save a lot of time, money, and guesswork in the future.
3) Locate the garden close to the house and a water source.
4) A south facing slope is advantageous in cooler climates with a short growing season.
5) Look for a location that is protected from extreme winds and pests by fences, trees, or buildings.
6) Make sure you are aware of any limitations on vegetable gardens imposed by your municipality or homeowner association.
