Planning a vegetable garden means thinking about what you have, what you need, and what you want from your gardening efforts.

Starting a vegetable garden requires a bit of forethought. You could just toss seeds into the wind and hope for the best, but that’s unlikely to generate a worthwhile crop.

Understanding the needs of different crops will help you decide where to plant them. Or whether to plant them at all. Garden planning sometimes means compromising on what will grow well versus your ideals.
