This Is My Second Year Farming a Vegetable Garden

farmerbrown added on January 10, 2011 | Answered

I was trying to get a list of veggies and possible fruits to grow this spring. My family is not picky. We eat just about any fruit and veggie. I'm still learning, so any suggestions would be fine if you have any.

You might also want to start looking at catalogs. Frankly there are SO MANY things to grow, that it would be hard to list them all. My favorite vegetable seed catalogs are Seed Savers Exchange (http://www.seedsavers.org/CatalogRequest.aspx) and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds (http://rareseeds.com/requestcatalog/). You can order the catalogs for free from their sites and then when you get them spend a good week dreaming of what can be possible in your garden this year. :)

It’s usually better to grow vegetables that you and your family already enjoy in addition to those that are easier to grow. Beets, carrots, lettuce, radishes, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, and beans are all good choices for beginners. Here's an article to get you started: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/vgen/vegetable-gardening-advice.htm

Melons are fairly easy to grow as well. This article should help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/melons/growing-melons.htm
