    Different vegetables have different needs. Different vegetables deplete the soil of different minerals every year. That is why gardeners rotate their vegetables in the vegetable garden yearly. Take a soil sample to your County Agricultural Extension Cooperative. They can help you for your location and what you want to plant.

    definatly get the county extension officer To help. Ask if he could bring a soil test kit...theyve got better kits than what’s in the stores. Some plants grow better if the ph is at a certain point. Also read up on companion planting......there is a book you might find at a library called carrots love tomatoes. What one uses from the soil the other replenishes. Also pay attention to last average frost dates for your area. And the average 1st frost dates....

    have a master gardener come and evaluate your proposed garden area they should take soil samples and test for soil ph etc they should also to asnswere just about question you have.
    do make note of how much Sun your proposed garden area get...most veggies need 6 to 8 h. Min. your garden will also need good drainage from rain....too soggy and the roots wil die. There are plants that play well together, and some do not. Pine trees secret a substance that can kill your garden. There is a book on companion planting, and lists out on the are out on the internet for companion gardening as well. You can type in your area code on certain web sites and find the average first and last frost dates. You need veggies that will mature in that span.
