If you’re wanting fresh vegetables this year, you might be wondering how to design a vegetable garden. Oh, certainly, you can go the traditional path and create tidy rows, but that isn’t your only alternative. Realistically, it is possible to become very creative with your aims and earn anything from a raised bed and container gardens, to a whole formal looking effort that just happens to yield vegetables instead of flowers!
By the way, some gardeners have started mixing vegetables into flower gardens also. For one thing, many blossoms are edible (roses, violets, nasturtium, etc.). For another, mixing flowers with vegetables is very good for your soil. Each plant absorbs different nourishment and by changing things up, you maintain your soil general balance for another growing season.
