We all need our daily dose of veggies to keep our body healthy and free from sickness. But there are times when people find themselves lacking of these in their kitchen. This won’t be a big issue, though, if you know how to grow vegetables in your home garden.
Contrary to what some people think, a vegetable garden need not be wide. Sometimes, you can just event plant and grow them in small boxes, pots, cups and not necessarily directly in your backyard’s soil.
Summer is the best time to start a veggie garden. With the sun out most of the time, you can be sure to enjoy continuous harvest.
Some veggies you can easily plant are the leafy green ones including lettuce, beans and herbs.
Beans are a favorite during summer and are a rich source of vitamins A, C and K, manganese, potassium, folate, iron and fiber. They need sun and well drained soil in order to enjoy a good harvest every few weeks.
Lettuce can easily be grown in a container and does not even need much sunlight. It needs sowing every few weeks so you can harvest regularly.
Radishes can also be grown either in containers or in the garden. Summer is ideal for growing the spicier variety. The milder variety is best planted in the spring.
Mustards are a great addition to fresh salads because they add a unique spicy flavor. They are best sown in early spring to mid-summer.
As for herbs, basil, cilantro and dill are worth planting. They provide different flavors and make dishes taste great.
