Vegetable Garden

As summer comes along, there are numerous wonderful vegetables you can add to your garden landscape.

Try Some Tomatoes

Better Homes and Gardens magazine suggests beefsteak tomatoes as one of the first vegetables to plant. These tomatoes are often red but can sometimes be yellow and green. These tomatoes are typically disease free and resilient but full of flavor.  Small fruit tomatoes are another important aspect to a well-rounded and thriving garden as well. These small tomatoes are bite sized and full of sweet flavor for snacking or garnishes. Planting them is as easy as buying some to transplant from your local nursery or buying seeds via mail order, than merely adding them to your landscape.

Plant Green Vegetables

When you’ve had your yard landscaped for a garden be sure to leave a lot of room for cucumbers. Only two cucumber plants can produce enough fruit for a family of four. Cucumbers are easy to grow and they grow quickly while thriving in the summer heat, according to Better Homes and Gardens. Mesclun Mix or leafy, tender salad greens are also a great addition to your project guaranteed to be an easy grow. Be sure to add some zest into your project by adding some basil to your landscape garden and make it a full rounded affair.
