5 Easy Foods To Grow In Your New Vegetable GardenJul 8, 2020
Here are 5 easy foods to grow in your new vegetable garden:
Some types of squash plants will climb and others will spread so I recommend planting squash babies by themselves in a raised bed or trellis. Keep them in full sun with moist soil.
Tomatoes are too big to grow in little pots or planters. Give them some space and a lot of soil to work with. Add lots of organic matter to the soil. Have your large planter raised at least one foot above the ground. Make sure these babies get 8 hours of sun each day and moist soil.
These little guys like cooler temperatures (anything between 60-65 degrees) so start them indoors and transition them outdoors (remember the closer you plant, the smaller the cabbage heads). Add mulch and watch your cabbage grow in no time.

They need lots of space to grow, and they will come back next year if everything goes according to plan. These do well in full sun (but if it’s too hot, move them to a partly shaded area). Their soil needs to stay moist – don’t forget the fertilizer and organic matter.
You can grow them in just about anything and they don’t need their own space. They need 6 hours of full sun, but can thrive in a partly shaded environment. Their soil needs to be moist – don’t allow it to dry out before watering again. 20 days and they should come up pretty easily.
