Planting Your First Veggie Garden

Making your first garden….. easier than you think! Click here for how to make yours in about an hour for just $50.

I live in Garland, and in my backyard, I grow a big garden. Since I order my seeds in bulk, I’ve always got plenty left over to give away. It’s better to spend double to buy 5000 Carrot Seeds than a Packet of 200, if you have friends that want to make their first garden too! 

I mail out about 100 free seed packets every 3 months (250-350 seeds each), with a blend of 5-7 different veggies so you can try a few things. Planting Instructions are down below, for each growing season. Happy gardening!

Gardening Rules for Beginners:  Not all your seeds will make it, but still give them all a try, and if they fail, try again in a few months, and let Nature work at it’s own pace instead of asking it to rush to match yours!
