Now that Halloween is behind us, you may be rethinking that second, third or even twentieth piece of candy (hey it happens). If you are looking to cleanse your body before the feasting of Thanksgiving commences, be sure to eat a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. And what better place to get those vegetables than from your own garden! Created by the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service, this document provides an overview of how to start your own fruit or vegetable garden. It covers selecting a garden site, planning your garden, general maintenance, sanitation and pest management and much more. This publication also includes a chart of basic warm season and cool season vegetables, popular culinary herbs, and a container gardening list, along with links to spring and fall planting guides.
