There is no bigger let down then growing fine organic  vegetable in your carefully planned vegetable garden, just to discover that nobody eats them and they have to be thrown away.

When you have your list of vegetables that you and the family likes you need to cross references this with the plot or area you have available. Failing to do this will decrease you chances for success with your first planned vegetable garden.

The reason for this is that the sun, space and soil are the most important parameter for  vegetables to grow. If your plot don’t have a lot of sun, vegetables like tomatoes and peppers will not thrive. If you love pumpkin you might want to consider the space they need when growing.
