Whatever system is used for growing crops, cultivation follows a similar pattern; preparation of the soil by loosening it, removing or burying weeds and adding organic manures or fertilisers; sowing seeds or planting young plants; tending the crop while it grows to reduce weed competition, control pests and provide sufficient water; harvesting the crop when it is ready; sorting, storing and marketing the crop or eating it fresh from the ground.<ref name=RHS/>
Different soil types suit different crops, but in general in temperate climates, sandy soils dry out fast but warm up quickly in the spring and are suitable for early crops, while heavy clays retain moisture better and are more suitable for late season crops. The growing season can be lengthened by the use of [[Horticultural fleece|fleece]], [[Cloche (agriculture)|cloches]], [[plastic mulch]], [[polytunnel]]s and [[greenhouse]]s.<ref name=RHS>{{cite book |title=The Royal Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Gardening |last1=Brickell |first1=Christopher (ed) |year=1992 |type=Print |publisher=Dorling Kindersley |isbn=978-0-86318-979-1 |pages=303–308}}</ref> In hotter regions, the production of vegetables is constrained by the climate, especially the pattern of rainfall, while in temperate zones, it is constrained by the temperature and day length.<ref name=Field/>
