Fresh food grown in your own vegetable garden is simply the best. You just need a few essentials for a successful vegetable garden: a properly sized site with a good selection of veggies, fertile soil, and plenty of sun.

Grow what you like to eat what you know you and your family will enjoy. That being said, grow a variety of vegetables and try a new variety to keep it interesting and fun.

Soil Prep~ The best garden has fertile, well-drained soil amended with our Bumper Crop and and our organic fertilizer Garden Elements for Fruit and Veggies.

Sun~ Most vegetables grow best with at least six hours of sun a day. If you have only three to four hours a day, try growing leafy green vegetables, such as lettuce, mescalin greens, and Swiss chard, or root veggies like carrots, beets, and radishes.

Heat-loving vegetables~ These vegetables and fruit can take the heat of summer. Beans, corn, eggplant, melons, peppers, tomatoes, pumpkin and watermelon to name just a few.

Cooler Crop Veggies~ If your growing season is short try growing these vegetables: bush beans, carrots, lettuce, mesclun greens, peas, radishes, scallions and spinach.

Vegetables & Fruits kids love to grow~ The following are easy-to-grow plants, and ones kids love to harvest. Carrots, cherry or grape tomatoes, gourds, beans on a teepee, pumpkins, watermelons and strawberries.

Working in the garden can be fun for the entire family, and it gives kids the experience if growing cycles and knowledge that can be passed on from one generation to the next. It also creates
wonderful memories to pass on as well!
