Asparagus

A cool-season, early Spring vegetable that takes a few years to get established, but once they do they will come back on their own year after year. They need full sun & good drainage. Lots of great nutritional value & cooking uses, including fresh eating.

Beets

A cool-season vegetable that can be planted in March/April, and late crop anytime from June to September. They like full to part sun & need to maintain plenty of moisture. Nutritious & can be frozen, canned & pickled.

 

Bell Peppers

A warm-season veggie that likes full sun & warm temperatures. Soil should be well drained, but be sure to maintain adequate moisture either with mulch or plastic covering. Add compost when planting & fertilizer after the first fruit has set. Great for fresh eating, steamed or sautéed.

Broccoli

A cool-season crop that is best for growing in the spring or fall. Broccoli requires full sun and moist, fertile soil that’s slightly acidic. Try not to get heads wet when watering. Rich in vitamins and minerals, and is a good source of Vitamin A, potassium, folic acid, iron, and fiber. Great for all uses!

 

Cabbage

A cool-season crop that likes full sun & moist soils. Avoid planting near broccoli, cauliflower, strawberries or tomatoes (they all like the same nutrients in the soil). Instead plant them near beans or cucumbers. A hardy, leafy vegetable full of nutrients!

Cauliflower

A cool-season vegetable that is a little bit challenging to grow since it does not tolerate the heat or cold very well. They need full sun & soil that is very rich in organic matter (lots of added compost!). They also need consistent soil moisture. Great fresh or for all kinds of cooking.

 

Cayenne Peppers

Warm-season veg that likes full sun & well-drained soil, yet moist soils. High in vitamin A & also contains vitamins B6, E, C as well as riboflavin, potassium & manganese. Used for cooking in its grown form or ground into a powder for many other uses.

Cucumber

A warm-season, easy-care vegetable that loves sun and water. cucumbers grow quickly as long as they receive consistent watering. Most varieties will grow in any amount of space, thanks to the plant’s ability to climb. Great for fresh eating & are perfect for pickling!

 

Eggplant

A warm-season crop that are ideal for raised beds (since the soil warms more quickly) & are also great for containers. They need full sun, moist soil & taller growing varieties need to be staked before fruit appears. Great for grilling!

Garlic

Incredibly useful in the kitchen & surprisingly easy to grow in the garden - this cool-season crop is traditionally best planted in fall, giving it a jumpstart on the growing season making it one of the first things to come up in spring. Need rich, well-drained soil. So many great uses!

 

Jalapeno

A warm-season veggie that yields a bountiful harvest & compact varieties grow well in containers. Use jalapeño on nachos or in salsa, or smoke the mature red ones over mesquite chips to make your own chipotle sauce.

Kale

A hardy, cool-season green that grows best in the spring and fall and can tolerate fall frosts. Needs full sun & well-drained soil. Can be used in salads or simply as a garnish & has a number of health benefits, as it is rich in minerals and vitamins A and C.

 

Kohlrabi

A cool-season veg that is an odd-looking member of the cabbage family grown for its bulb-like stem that tastes like a mild, sweet turnip. You can also eat the leaves. Needs full sun each day (the more the better), fertile, well-drained, moist soil with plenty of rich organic matter. High in fiber and vitamin C, kohlrabi is a fast-grower, with plants ready to harvest just a few weeks after planting.

Lettuces

A cool-season crop that grows well in the spring and fall. Needs part sun & fertile, well-drained soil. Consider planting rows of chives or garlic between your lettuce to control aphids - they act as “barrier plants” for the lettuce. Home-grown lettuce is far superior—in both taste and vitamin A content—to the store-bought alternative!

 

Onions

A cool-season vegetable that offers so many easy-to-grow varieties to choose from! They need full sun & cool, moist soil. Cooking uses are endless!

Peas

A cool-season veg that are one of the first crops to plant in the spring. Plant as soon as the ground can be worked—even if snow falls after you plant them!  They need full to part sun & well-drained soil. They are easy to grow, but have a limited growing season. As with other legumes, peas will fix nitrogen in the soil, making it available for other plants - This makes them a great companion plant. Great for fresh eating or for cooking.

 

Potatoes

Cool-season crops that like cool weather and well-drained, loose soil. There are so many varieties to choose from - any homegrown potato’s taste & texture is far superior to those of store-bought spuds, especially the early varieties. Many great cooking uses!

Shallots

A cool-season crop that should be grown in full sun, but will tolerate partial shade in rich soil. They are planted close to the surface, as a layer of compost will help retain moisture. A great mixed taste of onion and garlic, great for many cooking uses.

 

Spinach

A super–cold-hardy vegetable that can be planted in very early spring, as well as in fall and winter. Need full sun to partial shade conditions along with well-drained soil. Versatile in both its nutrition and its ability to be eaten raw or cooked. It is higher in iron, calcium, and vitamins than most cultivated greens, and one of the best sources of vitamins A, B, and C.

Tomatoes

A warm-season crop that needs full sun & loose, well-drained, moist soil. Though we technically eat the fruit of the tomato plant, the tomato is typically treated as a vegetable in eating and cooking and, thus, commonly categorized as such. They can be grown in containers or in the ground & should be staked when planted. Great fresh, for cooking, canning or sauces.

Yacon

A warm-season vegetable that is easy to grow and store, high-yielding, super nutritious and crunchy like an apple. Yacon root (pronounced ya-kon) is one of the many “new” vegetables coming to us from South America. Needs full sun & well-drained soil. Aids digestion & promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestine, while inhibiting toxic bacteria - also a good source of antioxidants. Great fresh, stir-fried, roasted, baked or made into pies & healthy chips.

Zucchini

A warm-season vegetable that are very prolific producers & easy to grow. Needs full sun & soil should be moist and well-drained, but not soggy. They are heavy producers & need nutrient-rich soil via compost & fertilizers. Harvest summer squash when small and tender for best flavor. Great for eating fresh, cooking & baking uses.

 

With all vegetables, make sure soil is well prepared & nutrient-rich before planting. Also be sure to fertilize throughout growing season to keep the soil full of nutrients to get the best veggies.
