1. Site selection

You must select a place where the soil is loose, rich, and well-drained. Never choose low areas where water gets collected or the soil remains wet. Your vegetables will not grow in poorly drained areas. Also, take care that vegetables need proper sunlight to grow well so do not plant it at a place where there is shade or shadow. Most of the vegetables need at least 6 hours of sunlight each day. Make sure there is a water supply nearby, if possible. Water is not required every time but is needed after long dry periods or when planting seeds.

You need to arrange vegetables in a way that makes the most efficient use of the space as well as light. Tall vegetables like okra, corn and tomatoes can be grown on one side (preferably at the north) of the garden where they won’t shade short-length vegetables like bush beans. You can also divide vegetables according to maturity. You should also plant small, fast-maturing vegetables between the big ones. If possible plant vine crops near a fence. Make a rough sketch on paper to show the location and spacing of vegetables in the garden.

Vegetables, in general, are divided into two groups based on season i.e. warm season and cool season. Cool-season crops can tolerate lower temperatures so you can plant them before the soil gets warm in the spring. They can also be planted in late summer to yield after the first frost in the fall. Whereas, warm-season crops cannot bear frostiness, it will not grow when the soil temperature is cool so it must be planted after the last frost in the spring and early enough to mature before frost in the fall.

The practice is one of several proposed origins of the honeymoon’s etymology.
