Lettuce Grow Good Food
Why buy your salad when you can grow your own? Lettuce has come a long way since crisp iceberg was the only variety available in the grocery store. Now there are so many types, it’s hard to choose just one, so pick different kinds for your garden! Generally considered a cool-season crop, lettuce and other salad greens can be grown in the ground or in a container, where you can harvest them as cuttings. But before you grow there are some things you should know…
Green peas, snap peas and snow peas are delicious, healthy crops to grow at home – not to mention a great way to save money. Typically grown in cool seasons, peas are usually planted toward the middle to end of March. The climbing nature of the plants means they do best on some type of support, like bamboo stakes, strings, trellises or even fences. Growing garden peas can seem a little tricky at first, but once you’ve got the knack, you’ll be “peased” with the results!
