> 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.

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.
