We've all been there...am I right? It's so admirable when someone is growing their own food, own vegetables. I gave many tries for gardening before really committing to it and finally enjoying it in a way that I never thought I would.
Starting a garden is not as easy as it may seem, taking care of a plant requires true and honest commitment. You have to think about your garden as about your dog or a baby. It need time, love, caring, nurturing, and much more.
I've been growing my own vegetables for two years now and I'm very much proud of how it's going. I love taking care of plants, especially when it comes to growing my own breakfast/lunch/dinner.
So, let's begin this journey together - grab your notebook, a pen, and cup of Tea, we're about to enter this beautiful world of gardening together.
First of all, gardening is not just for those who are bored of indoor activities. Taking care of nature around you can be very therapeutic and can even help with anxiety, depression and similar struggles, mental states.
When you're watering your plants, pay attention the way that you're doing it. Getting water everywhere, meaning, in the leaves, will make the leaves floppy, also too much water on the plant can deny access for sunlight and we all know that a healthy plant needs some sunshine.
KNOW YOUR TERRITORY
Gardening is not only about watering plants, choosing an aesthetic angle of your garden and harvesting the finish result. Choosing your "gardening zone" is important because it will help you understand when you will have your last and first freeze of each season, this way you will also be able to choose when and what to plant.
CHOOSE A HOME FOR YOUR PLANTS
There are different types of "homes" that you can choose for your garden to be grown at. Such as raised beds, in-ground beds, containers - but how to choose the one that suits you the most?

DON'T WASTE ANY MORE TIME
The most common excuse that everyone uses for why they haven't started a garden yet is the TIMING. Many think that a garden can't be started on Summer, but it's not entirely true. Yes, Spring is the perfect time for new beginnings and growing plants but there's a reason why we call some vegetables, fruits, plants..."Seasonal Plants", so they can be grown and harvested in different seasons. You just have to do your own research and find the plants that suit your timing of starting your own garden.
