If you are thinking of starting your first garden and are wondering what to plant?
Here is the basic garden I grow every year:
Herbs (1 each)-chives, thyme, rosemary, sage, oregano, and flat leaf parsley
3 basil plants (for pesto and seasoning)
3 tomato plants-1 cherry tomato type and 2 slicer types
3 pepper plants-2 sweet peppers and 1 spicy pepper
1 bush zucchini
1 bush cucumber
A 6 pack of lettuces, spinach or other greens you like
1 Egyptian walking onion (or other bunching, perennial onion)
If it is your first garden, I recommend buying plants. You can save seeds from your heirloom veggies this year to plant for next year.
There are many programs and app’s out there today that can help you know what to grow, when to plant, and will give you growing tips on each fruit or vegetable. You can also search my blog for growing tips.
The biggest watch out for starting a new garden is starting too big. Start small with what you like and use the most in the kitchen.
