Spinach is an amazing cool weather crop that is one of our favorites! It tastes so much better directly from your garden than buying from the grocery store. You will be so impressed just like we were the first time we tried it! Spinach is a staple of our garden in the spring and fall.
Artichokes are a perennial that does best in an environment with cool summer temperatures and mild winters, but can be grown in any environment. They not only provide artichokes, but also add beauty and color to your garden! They are commonly grown for ornamental purposes since their flowers add such beauty! Once they are established they will need very little care.
Chamomile is not only a beautiful addition to your garden with its ‘daisy-like’ white and yellow flowers, but is great for its usefulness as a companion plant. Chamomile helps to repel pests from neighboring plants because of its strong smell. This blog post talks about how you can plant and grow your own chamomile with our free mobile app!
Cilantro is one of our most commonly used herbs in the kitchen. If you let it go to seed, you can get a second herb from the same plant: coriander! Both versions of this plant will give your dish a tasty kick!
Berry bushes are typically fairly easy to grow and well worth the reward! There are a few pests to watch out for, but you can manage easily organically!
We grow a lot of peppers in the summer because they are really easy to grow and thrive in our hot conditions. They are relatively pest-free and can actually help keep pests off other plants, making them a valuable companion plant.

Tomatoes come with a lot of pest management. Beware of the tomato hornworm. He is a feisty fellow that can take out an entire tomato plant in a day!
Luckily, spinach doesn’t attract many pests and those that it does get are fairly easy to manage!
Tomatoes are fun to grow and even more fun to eat! The wide usage of tomatoes makes this one of our favorite things to grow in the garden. Vining tomatoes (or indeterminate tomatoes) grow indefinitely until it freezes. Because of this, they require trellising on a tall support structure. Beware of the tomato hornworm, though. He is a fiesty fellow that can take out an entire tomato plant in a day!
