Choose a location with full sun and well drained soil
When starting a garden, there are a few things to consider before you begin planting.
The first step is to choose a location with full sun and well drained soil.
Sunlight is necessary for plants to grow, and well drained soil helps prevent diseases and pests. If possible, try to locate your garden in an area that receives at least six hours of sunlight each day.
Amend the soil with compost or manure before planting
One way to improve the quality of your garden soil is by amending it with compost or manure before planting.
Compost is made up of decomposed organic matter, such as leaves, grass clippings, and food scraps, while manure is made up of animal waste. Both compost and manure are rich in nutrients that help to improve the soil’s structure and fertility.
Adding compost or manure to your garden soil can be done in one of two ways: you can either mix it in with the soil before planting, or you can spread it on top of the soil as a mulch.
If you’re mixing it in with the soil, use a shovel to incorporate it evenly throughout. If you’re using it as a mulch, spread it 2-3 inches thick over the surface of the soil.
Sow the seeds directly into the garden soil
Direct sow is the process of planting seeds in the soil outdoors, without any kind of container.
This method is preferable to starting seeds indoors, because the plants are able to establish a stronger root system in the ground.
It also allows for a longer growing season, because you can plant earlier in the spring and later into the fall than you could if you started seeds inside.
Thin out the plants
To 8-12 inches apart when they are 2-3 inches tall.
When starting tomato plants from seed, there are four main steps:
1. Soak the seeds in warm water overnight.
2. Plant the seeds in soil, 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart.
3. Keep the soil moist but not wet.
4. Thin out the plants to 8-12 inches apart when they are 2-3 inches tall.
But avoid getting the leaves wet.
Watering your plants is important to keep them healthy, but you don’t want to water them so much that the leaves get wet. Wet leaves can cause problems like mold and fungus. You should water your plants regularly, but make sure the water doesn’t reach the leaves.
