Vegetable Gardening in Mississippi
To determine what size garden you need, consider your family size, the amount of vegetables you need, and whether you will preserve or use the vegetables fresh.
Most important in determining garden size are the gardener’s physical ability, available time and equipment, and genuine interest in gardening. Even though the rewards of gardening are great, the work is hard.
It is better to start small and build on success than to become discouraged and abandon the garden because it was too large or too much work. See the Planting Guide.
