Here are the Top 5 Vegetables to Plant this Spring.
I love Black Seeded Simpson. Years ago I figured lettuce would be hard to grow but have since found it is very easy. Lettuce will grow in a large garden, a raised bed, or even a flower pot.
These things crawl all over the place but produce pounds and pounds of tasty treats. Boston Pickling and National Pickling are my favorites.
I have found zucchini to be one of the easiest vegetables to grow. Over the past 9 years no matter how the rest of my garden is doing – I have plenty of zukes!
4. Summer Squash (crookneck)
Another plentiful vegetable – Summer Squash can produce pounds and pounds of nutritious sustenance. The more you pick – the more you get.
I planted my first crop of these last year literally had okra TREE’s providing so much okra we were begging people to take ’em. Pick when small and the plants will continue to produce and produce.
p.s. I live in the Southeast – Zone 7b.
Well, tomatoes would make this a salad garden. How about broccoli instead of okra?
Broccoli isn’t too bad – I have had good luck growing it.
My own personal top 5 will be: lettuce, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, corn and squash.
