Hello everybody I am David Rodriquez, horticulturist with Texas Agri-life Extension service on behalf of Expert Village and we are going to show you some gardening steps in preparing your vegetable garden for the spring planting. All right folks, we mentioned that we want to pick a location that is level, weed free, cleaned up as much as possible and away from shade trees. We can see that it is already late in the afternoon and we have selected this area, it is not receiving eight to ten hours of sun, but it receives a good four to six hours of sun. This would be a really good area for any leafy crops or any root crops, we wouldn’t want to consider planting fruiting vegetables that is going to have seeds like peppers, tomatoes because it is not going to be enough sun. This simply is a flat area, it is level, it is clean and we are getting it well prepared for future planting this spring.
