Welcome to Veggie Gardener!
Veggie Gardener is a website dedicated to all things concerning growing vegetables in a home garden. Everything from how to start seeds to harvesting tips, and everything in between.
My name is Tee Riddle and I am the creator of Veggie Gardener.
I live in Hampton, Virginia and have been growing vegetables for several years.
I began growing my own tomatoes when I was about 14 years old and have been expanding my vegetable garden ever since.
I now have a 1,600 sq ft vegetable garden and primarily grow tomatoes, okra, squash, potatoes, onion, cucumbers and many more vegetables and herbs. It isn’t a huge garden, but I try to make the most of it by using intensive and companion planting when possible.
I love trying new vegetables and my latest experiment was growing kohlrabi for the first time.
It was fantastic! I had a great time growing them and an even better time cooking them during a few meals.
Why have a website/blog about vegetable gardening?
It is my hope to share my gardening experiences with you and other vegetable gardeners, or someone that has an interest in starting a vegetable garden of their own.
Hopefully, you will find the information here useful for your vegetable gardening, and maybe pick up a tip or two here and there.
I also hope that you will share your tips and tricks with me as well. Feel free to leave your questions, tips, or suggestions in the comments section of any post on the site. There is always a good tip or method to learn out there.
If you have never grown a vegetable garden, there is no better time than now to start one. The current economic conditions have made growing your own vegetables a very cost-effective practice, so if you haven’t started yet I hope you decide to.
There’s nothing better than tending a garden, and then savoring the fruits of your labor come harvest!
