Hello my name is Jose Zuniga and I'm representing Well we have to plan our vegetable garden. Do I want this to be a organic vegetable garden, or do I want it to be just a traditional normal vegetable garden? That is up to you; ask yourself these questions: I'm the type of person that I'm more into the healthier side? Or would a typical one be fine with me? Taking care of that next step. What kind of vegetables do you enjoy? What kind of vegetables does your family enjoy? Perhaps your husband if your married or your wife, your children, your friends, cause after all you have to plant and harvest what you enjoy. Remember your are the one that is going to be doing the cooking. It is going to be great if you just step out of your kitchen, grab a hold of a tomato, get a carrot, start cooking, prepare a salad. Also you need to take in to consideration if some of those vegetables do better in the spring or in the fall, so you have to take that into consideration. One thing that I have noticed is that I happen to live in a couple of the states here in the United States is depending on the region, even though some of the vegetables do better in the fall, they will do fine in the summer because the climate is what is going to help the vegetable grow. So if you live like in the west coast, a lot of those vegetables that are more towards for the winter or for the fall you would be fine for them. You can compile all these information we are going to be ready to purchase everything that we need. We have a budget, stay in your budget, and this is how we plant our vegetable garden.
