Q: My 23-year-old daughter has adopted a vegan diet and I’d like to garden with her. I don’t want to make it so large that it becomes a chore, or too small to have a number of varieties of food. Could you advise on how large a garden might be wise for us?
A: University of Georgia garden expert Wayne McLaurin came up with a plan for a 25′ x 50′ garden I think you’d find enjoyable. I’ve collected several good gardening publications for you at http://xrl.us/GROWVEGETABLES (BROKEN). Remember that the key to success is good soil. You can get a head start now by digging the plot and adding soil conditioner or manure so it will be ready when you decide to start planting.
