Here's How To... Start a Garden

First-time gardeners are encouraged to start small, perhaps with a "kitchen garden" that will offer fresh herbs and a small quantity of fruits and vegetables for use in summer meals.

“Setting aside a small plot near the kitchen or back door or choosing to arrange containers or hanging baskets near a porch or patio may be all that it takes for a beginning gardener to become a more confident gardener,” says Evelyn Neier, a Kansas State University Research and Extension horticulturist.

“Lettuce, tomatoes, peppers and herbs such as parsley, basil or rosemary are easy to grow and make flavorful additions to summer menus.”
