Decide a good area for the garden
Before setting up a vegetable garden, the very first thing you have to do is to decide an area for the setup. It is always good to pick the sunniest spot where your plants can get sun rays. A perfect location will make your kitchen garden more beautiful and long-lasting.
What you need to grow in your garden
After picking up the location for your garden, you need to consider the vegetables and plants that you want to grow.

– Green Salads
– And anything you want to eat.

Where to get plants for your garden?
Do you want to buy seeds or pick small plants from a local garden? If you are bot familiar with the growing and planting techniques, then start with gifted plants to get your confidence level up. After getting this experience, you can handle and tackle anything more demanding for your garden. Apart from that, you can also try vegetable going hacks like spring onion trick.

Another method you can opt is, add some tea leaves or coffee under the soil. You can also add two or three teaspoons of vinegar into the water. Of course you can buy all the essential things from the local store and nursery, but this is a pandemic situation, and if you do all things by yourself, then your garden will be organic.
