3 Easiest Crops to Grow in Your Garden

Published by at 5:28 pm under Gardening

If you’ve ever wanted to grow your own vegetables but don’t know where to start, then there are options for gardens of virtually any size.

In other words, there are a number of plants that are easy to grow. All one needs to do is start sowing these plants to get started.

Here are 3 crops that are the easiest to grow:

artificial-grass1: Potatoes

This veggie can be grown in potato bags and between the months of February and March. When you see the green shoots appear, just cover them with more compost. Continue to do this until the bag is full. After that, only water the crop and nothing more. In 10 to 20 weeks, all you have to do is tip the bag out and collect the potatoes.

2: Mint

One thing about growing mint is that it grows very fast and which is why it is a good idea to grow it in a pot. This is to prevent it from spreading too quickly. Of course, if you intend on growing peas and potatoes, then it would serve as excellent garnish too. Not only can you pick it fresh-picked from the garden but you can freeze it in ice cubes to use later on.

3: Peas

This type of crop prefers cooler weather. Sow them in the ground between March and June and collect the crop between June to August. The only thing that you have to worry about is providing them with support as they grow. Use chicken wire or netting for this. One benefit is that the more you pick them, the more they grow.
