Our vegetable garden plans nave been designed with easy care in mind. It should take no more than 1 hour a week to keep your garden thriving. Here's where you learn how to plant your garden, and also about the 'gardener's WWF': weeding, watering, and feeding!
Planting your garden. Here's a quick checklist for planting your garden:
Weeding. Because our vegetable garden plans are compact, and the plants are closely spaced, weeding in your garden will be minimal. Just pull by hand any weeds that you see; if you have taken our advice and 'pre-sprouted' your garden beds, you will have few weeds to deal with at this stage.
Watering. Your garden will require, on average, about an inch of water each week, including rainfall. If you are growing lettuce or mesclun mix in your garden, its a good idea to water them more frequently - i.e. 3-4 times a week. This keeps them growing quickly, and helps prevent them getting bitter or 'bolting' to seed. Other crops will thrive on just once a week watering.
Feeding. About once every three weeks, give your garden a feeding with an organic liquid fertilizer - e.g. fish emulsion, available in most garden supply stores. Again the exception to this is 'cut and come again' crops like mesclun; you should give these crops a feeding every time you cut them, to help them regrow quickly.

---------------May 2020 farm update----------------
New Terra Farm has a new venture this season; we are preparing to launch our legal cannabis start-up, TNT-Buds. We were medical growers for a number of years, the herb helped Suzie tremendously with arthritic pain.
One consequence of this
is, I've slashed prices on ALL the New Terra Farm books. The average savings is over 60%.
Hundreds of people have bought my books, I really appreciate your support. Funds from book sales are going to help us contribute to the legal cannabis market, which I think is a worthwhile and needed thing.
Happy Growing, Scott & Suzie
