A Vegetable Garden in 4 easy steps

What You’ll Need

  • pots (terra-cotta or ceramic are best; plastic tends to get too hot for plants)
  • peat-based potting soil (like MiracleGro), which will drain easily and allow roots to spread
  • raw eggs, in shells
  • seeds (herbs such as sage, thyme, basil, and rosemary and vegetables such as lettuce, green beans, peas, eggplants, peppers, summer squash, and tomatoes flourish in containers — look for seed packets that say “compact” or “space saver”)
  • plant markers
  • gardening gloves
  • trowel
  • screwdriver

Drill five or six ¼-inch drainage holes in the bottom of any pots that don’t have them. To figure out the best placement for your garden, observe your yard at different times throughout the day: The ideal location gets at least six hours of sunlight. Nearly all vegetables will grow better in full sunlight than in shade, but some crops (lettuces, mustard greens) can tolerate more shade than others (onions, tomatoes). Cramped for space? Consider grouping several different plants together in one large (20-inch-diameter or bigger) pot, suggests Jack Algiere, four-season grower at Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in Pocantico Hills, NY.

Step 1: Prepare the pot

The size of your pot depends on the size of your plant: 20-inch-diameter pots work well for tomatoes and eggplants, and 4-inch pots are great for herbs. Fill the pot with 2 inches of potting soil. Place one uncracked raw egg in the pot — as it decomposes, it will serve as a natural fertilizer — and cover with soil.

Step 2: Make holes

Using a screwdriver (or your finger), create five to six holes that are 1 inch deep. New seeds tend to have more successful germination rates than the leftover packets from last year; a good rule of thumb is to expect one plant to grow per every five fresh seeds planted.

Step 3: Plant seeds

Drop one or two seeds in each hole, then cover with a thin layer of potting soil. A faster option: Purchase seedlings and transplant them into containers. Use your fingers to gently tease the roots apart before planting. This way the roots will be able to spread easily into the new soil.

Step 4: Tend the garden

After planting, make sure to keep the soil moist (not wet) to the touch. Push your index finger into the soil about an inch. If it’s dry, water the soil itself (rather than the leaves, because wet leaves encourage plant diseases). Add fertilizer to the plants every two to three weeks, according to package directions.
