4.Add a 4-inch to 6-inch layer of organic material to prepare the soil. Use compost material or animal manure to improve the richness of your soil

5. Plant seeds or seedlings of vegetables that grow well in your climate

6. Water your garden regularly. Give your growing veggies at least 1 inch of water a week
