Thankfully, cultivation is not rocketing engineering. More surprisingly, it is much simpler than expected. Here are some small tips to tell you how to grow and care for vegetables in your garden, even at your balcony or at your terrace. We start with the most common vegetables.

Potatoes:

There are few things a man can take from potatoes. They are very friendly, as they mix with almost every other vegetable, and they are very simple. Just one thing, the sown area must be hilled up, because potatoes need additional loose soil area so they can swell. Hilling also prevents them from weeds. Potatoes can withstand few dry days, but they require adequate amount of water. Potatoes expand more easily in loose, well-aerated, loamy soil than a compact one. Addition of organic matter likes leaves, hay, peat- moss or manure definitely helps.
