How To Grow Your Own Vegetables Affordable From Seeds

Posted by on

Gardening is a fun, healthy and peaceful activity enjoyed by millions of people. However, it is also an incredibly practical activity that can provide you with delicious, nutritious produce for free! Most people agree that home-grown fruits and vegetables are superior in flavor and quality to those sold in the grocery store. By growing your own produce, you can to control what varieties you get, what gets sprayed on them and when they are harvested. You won't have to put up with bland, under-ripe and pesticide-soaked food from the store, and you'll never have to buy another starter plant again! Here's how to grow your own from seed.

Collect Seeds

You don't even have to go out and purchase seeds to get started. All you need to do is save seeds from the produce you eat. Tomatoes, peppers, watermelons, apples and squash are a few examples. Simply clean off the seeds, set them out to dry and store them in a cool, dry place. It is often recommended that you keep them in your refrigerator. Do not put your seeds in the freezer, and always make sure to clearly label them so that you know what you're planting!

Planting Time

The beauty of growing from seed is that you can start most fruit and vegetable seeds indoors before planting them outside. This helps to ensure that they're protected from fungus and insect damage while they're in their most delicate stage of life. Most seedlings can be safely planted outside after the threat of frost has passed.

Location Matters

When it's time, plant your seedlings outside in a location that gets full sun for most of the day. Good soil is a must. If your soil contains a lot of clay or is too dry, add some peat moss, sand, perlite and a high-quality compost until it is light and loamy. Within a short time, you'll be enjoying fresh, tasty fruits and vegetables!
