The first thing in making a garden is choosing a place. Without a choice, it simply means doing the best you can with the circumstances. With limited space, it turns into a garden, or square garden. Definitely a box garden is better than nothing at all.
But now we will assume that it is really possible to choose a suitable site for the garden. What will be chosen? The biggest determinant is the sun. One will not have the north corner, unless it is absolutely imposed on it; Because, while the northern corners are suitable for ferns, some wildflowers, and begonia, they are of little use as public garden sites.
How to start a making garden vegetable?
If possible, choose the ideal location for southern exposure. Here the sun lies warm all day. When the garden is located this way, the rows of greenery and flowers should go north and south. Thus, the plants receive sunlight throughout the morning on the eastern side, and throughout the afternoon on the western side. One should not have any unbalanced plants with such an arrangement.
Assume the park faces southeast. In this case the western sun is out of the problem. In order to get the best distribution of sunlight, run the northwest and southeast rows.
The idea is to get as much sunlight as possible with as even distribution as possible for the longest period of time. With the unbalanced growth of window plants, it is easy enough to see the effect of poorly distributed light on the plants. So if you use a little diagram to remember that you wish the sun shine one part of the day on one side of the plants and one part the other, you can juggle any situation.
Southern exposure gives the ideal condition because the sun gives roughly half the time to each side. Exposure to the north may mean an almost complete absence of sunlight; The northeastern and southwestern places always have an uneven distribution of sunlight, no matter how carefully planned this is.
The garden should be planned, if possible, on paper. The plan is a big help when it’s real planting time. Saves time and unnecessary purchase of seeds.
New garden areas are likely to be found in two situations: either covered with grass or with litter. In large garden areas, the land is plowed and the sod is turned down; But in small gardens remove sod. The next question is how to take off the sod in the best way. Anchor and secure garden placement. The line gives a precise and straight path that must be followed.
Cut the edges with a spade along the line. If the space is small, say four feet by eighteen or twenty, that’s an easy matter. This narrow strip can be distinguished like a chessboard, chunks of flesh by a spade, and can be removed easily. This can be done in two long strips that are cut lengthwise from the tape. When the lawn is cut, roll it up like a carpeting roll.
But suppose a piece of garden land is large. Then divide this into slices the width of a foot and strip off the meat as before. What do you do with soda? Don’t throw it away because it’s full of richness, even though it’s not quite in the form available. So fill the sour grass side down a square over the other.
Leave it to rot and rot. When rotted makes a good compost. This pile of rotting plant material is called a compost pile. Throughout the summer, add any old green plant matter to this. In the fall put the fall leaves on. Much good is fixed for another season.
Even when the garden was large enough to plow, I would choose the largest chunks of soda rather than stir it up. Go beyond the plowed area, pick up chunks of meat, shake well and pack into a compost heap.
Just leveling the ground is not enough. The soil is still in clumps. Always also one has to break large blocks. But even so, the land is not in a suitable form for cultivation. The ground should already be very good to plant in it, because the seeds can actually get very close to the fine soil particles.
But large lumps leave large areas that the small root hairs cannot penetrate. The seeds are left trapped in an ideal waste when planted in plots of soil. A child surrounded by large chunks of beef may starve to death. A seed is located between large clumps of soil in a similar position. A spade cannot do the job of crushing soil. But a rake can. This is the rake value. It’s a great cracking cutter, but won’t work for large lumps. If the soil still has large lumps, take the hoe.
Many people deal with the shovel awkwardly. The main business of this application is to rid the soil of weeds and move the top surface. It is used in summer to form mulch from dust that has great moisture retention value in the soil. I often see people as if they were to chop off atoms everywhere.
Hoeing shouldn’t be a vigorous exercise like this. Shoveling is hard and powerful work, but not hoeing and chipping.
After breaking the blocks, use a rake to make the bed soft and smooth. Now the great work has been done.
