Vegetable Origins

You have probably heard the old adage, "if you want to catch a fish, you need to think like a fish!" We would submit to you that the same thinking can be applied to gardening. If you want to be more successful growing a certain plant, you need to know that plant!

The first bit of knowledge that you must learn is where different species originated from. This gives you a basic understanding of the optimal growing conditions for that species and what conditions you will need to replicate in your own garden in order to reap a harvest from your efforts.
