I'm here today to ask a few questions on my mothers behalf who is interested in starting a vegetable garden.
With that said I have a few questions that I hope other members of this forum might be able to assist me with, and perhaps guide me in the right direction to finding the answers to my questions.
1.First of all I would like to know what are the key fundamentals that any one person should know about before considering starting a vegetable garden?
2.What are the fundamentals and requirements that one should know about in order to start the actual process?
3.What have been the best methods, through personal experience to maintaining and up-keeping their garden once the actual process has been underway? Are there any references to ideal "systems" that have been proven to work and be effective?
4.What are common mistakes made by beginners to the field of vegetable gardening?
5.Is there a difference in method of Organic vegetable gardening and standard vegetable gardening? If so, what might that be? What is more popular among gardeners?
6.For anyone who is an experienced vegetable gardener, what are some things that you wish you would have done after you started your vegetable garden? What are some things you would like to know yourself in order to perhaps, increase the effectiveness of your garden?
7.Are there any recommended books?
I'm really trying to get a basic understanding here of all that might involve the process of vegetable gardening, as myself nor my mother have any experience in this field of endeavor.
Any help that could be provided would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you all!
EDIT: I'd like to add one more question in here and that is:
If there could exist the ideal product for either an experienced gardener or one who is just new to it, what would (in your opinion) that product consist of in terms of being most helpful, beneficial and insightful?
