Your Sustainable Garden

Posted on - April 23, 2018

Legacy Café Catering really enjoy purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables from local framers. Purchasing from local farmers helps our local economy. However, growing your own fruits and vegetables can be personally rewarding and healthy. May is a good time to start your planting. Legacy Café Catering has listed a few plants that you can start planting. Happy planting!!!
Beans: Start planting both bush and pole beans now. If possible, try a continual 7-10-day sowing of varieties. This will give you continual bean crops and not one large harvest with wasted crop. Try Contender, Kentucky Wonder or Topcrop.
Beets: Sow beets now for a fast. These bees will make an early summer treat. I like Detroit Dark Red
Cabbage: Cabbage is one of the easier plants to grow in the garden. Be sure to fertilize and water when cabbage head begins to form.
Carrots: Be sure to plant carrots by mid-July. A fall crop will keep in the garden until used.
Corn: One of the fastest growing crops to grow. For a sweet treat, after cleaning your corn either boil it or grill it. Yummy, a treat you will soon not forget.
Cucumbers: Vine or bush cucumber plants are fast growing. Be careful to pick a variety for the space you have in your garden. Note: Vine cucumbers will need far more space than bush varieties.
Herbs: Plant heat loving herbs like basil, oregano, thyme and sage. Try Dill, Oregano or Italian Basil
Peppers: One of my favorites. Peppers take up little space when plated close together. Try planting a variety of Peppers such as hot, and mild. Note: Starting seeds indoors will yield better results.
Summer Squash: Plant these in June and you will have pleasing Squash in July and August. Butternut and Cocozelle are two of my favorite.
Tomatoes: The most valued garden vegetable and Lip-smacking good. Growing tomatoes is enjoyable. Tomatoes come in many colors, shapes, taste, and sizes. Try Brandywine, Heirloom or Roma for starts. Businesses
