Bok Choy (also sometimes called Chinese Cabbage) is a cool weather vegetable that can be grown to harvest in spring and fall. It does not grow into a head and has beautiful large, dark green leaves.
Kohlrabi is not only a super healthy vegetable, but it’s also easy to grow! Its unique look will add beauty to your garden as well.
Collard greens are one of the rare leafy greens that can tolerate both hot and cold temperatures. Long after our kale, spinach, and lettuce have bolted to seed, the collard greens will still be going strong! They are also more pest-resistant than the other members of the brassicaceae family.
This fast-growing, cool-season salad green (aka “Rocket”) – often ready to harvest as early as 4 weeks after seeding – adds a tangy, peppery or mustard-like flavor to salads and mesclun mixes. Arugula can be incredibly spicy as the temperature warms up, but sweetens as it cools.
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!
Kale is one of the things we grow the most. Its leaves are very nutritious, containing high levels of vitamins A, B, C, and K and large amounts of fiber, potassium, and calcium. It is also one of the few plants that we can grow all winter long. We plant it in the fall, and it typically grows all the way until the following summer.
We love to grow beets because they’re full of vitamins, and the entire plant can be eaten. The greens from beets are great in salad mixes, and the roots are a sweet, earthy addition to a vegetable juice.
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.
Cabbage takes up a lot of space in the garden, but it’s very easy to grow and stores longer than most vegetables. Cabbage worms, as their name implies, love cabbage as much as we do; however, they’re easy to manage!
You can grow beans as snap beans, shell beans or dry beans. They are extremely easy to grow and will always be a staple on our garden. We plant new rounds of them every 3 weeks from spring until the end of summer. How to Grow: Bush beans can be planted as soon as the last spring frost has occurred until 10 weeks before first fall frost. In milder climates, bush beans can be planted […]
