Earthing Planting Vegetable Garden
There’s something about planting a vegetable garden that just feels right – like you’re doing something good for the world. But did you know that you can also do something good for yourself by planting a vegetable garden?
Earthing, or grounding, is the practice of connecting your body to the Earth’s natural energy. When you’re grounded, the Earth’s negative electrons flow into your body, helping to balance your electrical system and reduce inflammation.
Studies have shown that earthing can help improve sleep, reduce pain and inflammation, and even boost your immune system. And what better way to get grounded than by planting a vegetable garden?
Studies have shown that vegetables grown in the ground contain more antioxidants and nutrients than those grown in containers. Plus, getting your hands dirty in the garden is a great way to reduce stress and connect with nature.
So why not plant a vegetable garden this year? Not only will you enjoy fresh, delicious produce, but you’ll also get the benefits of earthing.
When Should You Plant Seeds For A Vegetable Garden
One of the most common questions we get at our garden center is, “When is the best time to plant seeds for a vegetable garden?” The answer, of course, depends on your climate, but there are general guidelines that can help.
In general, the best time to plant seeds for a vegetable garden is when the soil is warm and dry. For most of the country, that means planting seeds in the spring, after the last frost.
In some parts of the country, it’s also possible to plant seeds in the fall. The key is to make sure the soil is warm and dry. In the northern states, for example, the ground can stay cold well into the spring. But by September or October, the weather has usually cooled off enough for plants to successfully germinate.
If you’re not sure when to plant seeds for your vegetable garden, your best bet is to check with your local garden center or agricultural extension office. They’ll be able to tell you the best time to plant seeds for your specific region.

Planting A Square Foot Vegetable Garden
There is a lot of information out there on how to plant a square foot vegetable garden. Much of it is conflicting, and it can be hard to know where to start. This guide will attempt to clear up some of the confusion, and provide a simple, step-by-step guide to planting your own square foot garden.
The first step is to decide what you want to plant. Not all vegetables are suitable for a square foot garden. The best vegetables to plant in a square foot garden are those that grow in tight clusters, such as carrots, beets, and radishes. leafy vegetables, such as lettuce and spinach, also do well in a square foot garden.
Once you have decided what you want to plant, you need to decide how many plants you want in each square. Most vegetables can be planted in groups of four or six plants. However, some vegetables, such as carrots, can be planted in groups of twelve or more.
The next step is to prepare the soil. Square foot gardens are typically grown in raised beds, because the soil in raised beds is easier to work and tends to be lighter and more fertile than the soil in regular gardens. If you are using a raised bed, the soil should be amended with compost or other organic matter before you plant. If you are not using a raised bed, you can still plant a square foot garden by creating planting squares in your existing garden bed. To do this, mark out a square foot area in your garden bed, and then use a trowel or shovel to create planting squares in the soil.
Once the soil is prepared, it is time to plant. The easiest way to plant a square foot garden is to use a grid system. To do this, divide your square foot garden into a series of smaller squares, and then plant one type of vegetable in each square. You can also use a planting guide to help you determine how many plants to plant in each square.
The final step is to water and fertilize your plants. Square foot gardens need less water and fertilizer than traditional gardens, but you still need to water and fertilize them regularly to ensure good growth.
That is it! Your square foot garden is now planted and ready to grow. Enjoy the fresh vegetables that your garden will provide.
