Purchase more than you think you will need (when possible)

Vegetable such as lettuce, radish, spinach, and beans tend to grow fast and can be planted many times during spring/summer seasons. Therefore, if you want to maximise on your harvest, buy as many seeds as possible in advance.


Be very selective with what seeds you will buy

If none of your family members will benefit from the harvest, it’s best not to waste your time, energy and space planting those seeds. However, with each passing season, you can try out new seeds once in awhile at a time can become a benefit to find out if they have any immediate benefit. If your efforts with certain seeds don’t work out, try others and go from there.

Consider the amount of space you have

This one really goes without saying. If you don’t have a lot of space to grow a certain amount of smaller veggies, don’t try planting things that will need a lot of space. If you only have enough space for things like tomatoes, beans or peppers, don’t try planting watermelon and pumpkin in that same space.
