Growing Vegetables

growing Vegetables

Growing vegetables is not too hard to do if you start doing it the right way. And I did the hard way many times.

There are some vegetables that are easier to start with then others. Believe me, I made that mistake myself.

The easiest vegetables to start with

  • Spinach
  • Beets
  • Radish
  • Green beans
  • Squash and Zucchini


Spinach is an early vegetable and don’t mind a little cold. However, if you grow it for the freezer or canning you will need a lot of plants. I just grow them and freeze them after blanching. I don’t have enough garden space for more.


Beet also like a little cooler weather but don’t like frost. So, don’t plant them till after the last frost date.


Radish might be the easiest to grow and does not not a lot of attention.

Green beans.

I love green beans and they are easy to can. That is why we grow pole beans and pole beans. Bush beans can also be grown as a second crop in the fall

Squash and Zucchini

Some people will not agree with me but I think they are easy to grow. They can be destroyed by squash bugs and vine bore bugs.
