Starting to build a new garden isn’t difficult. Most people begin by going out into their yards with a shovel or garden tiller, digging up the dirt and putting in a few plants. Following the natural methods, add a little mulch or compost, and you’re well on your way to make good soil for your homegrown vegetables. But in the long run, the success of your garden depends on making healthy garden soil. By adding organic materials and tilling as little as possible, the more you can do to keep your soil healthy, the more productive your garden will be and the higher the quality of your crops.
