Vegetable gardening is an empowering activity for people of all ages and backgrounds. Whether you have a few containers, a community garden plot, or a large "country" garden, you can supply your family and friends with nutritious vegetables for 6 to 9 months of the year. Vegetable gardening is terrific exercise, puts you in touch with nature, and can help reduce household food expenses.
Many vegetables are easily grown in Maryland, but planning and preparation are essential for a good gardening experience. Before you run out to the garden center and buy plants, think about the type of garden that best fits your situation. Whichever one you choose, it's always a good idea to start small!
