HOW TO GROW VEGETABLES

Almost all vegetables need full sun -- from morning through the end of the day. Soil must be well-drained. Add organic material to the soil and dig in. Mulch garden area. Water at soil level, at least 1 inch of water per week. Keep leaves dry, or water in the morning if using sprinklers.

*The terms "cold" and "cole" sound similar, but have different meanings. "Cold," of course, refers to temperature. "Cole" refers to any of various plants belonging to the Cruciferae or mustard family.
