We’ll discuss how to grow popular vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, root vegetables, lettuces, and more. Learn which you can easily start from seed and which you may want to purchase from a local farm or nursery. The benefits of succession planting and crop rotation will also be covered. Tips for growing in beds or in containers will be discussed as well as common pests, diseases, and how to control them.
