Vegetables are commonly planted in rows. There’s no rule that they have to be planted that way but it can be easier to tend to them when they are in straight, even rows.

  1. Use the long handle of a garden rake, hoe or shovel to press a  line in the soil.
  2. Then plant your seeds inside the indentation.
