07 Jul What Food to Plant in Your Garden Now
Summer has officially arrived. Tis the season of barbeques, beaches and farming. That’s right it’s the perfect time of year to plant food that you can eat for the rest of the summer. Nothing tastes like fresh more than something you’ve grown in your very own yard.

Hold on just a minute. There are veggies that take little maintenance, grow like weeds and you will actually want to eat them! Check out our summer top 5 to keep your guests impressed and both wallet and bellies fat and happy.
Can be planted every 2 weeks and just need a little water to grow. Keep ‘em wet and plant every fortnight to keep the party going. Most lettuce and arugula will also double the fun by being able to be harvested more than once. Atkins never tasted so delicious.
Kale ya! (And chard)
Are expensive to buy, easy to grow and packed with nutrients. Best part is you can break off the leaves you need and let the plant keep growing!
Get the cute little cherries to pep up your plate and extend the growing season. You can even grow seeds from your fresh cherry tomatoes.

You too can have a beautiful garden full of tasty foods with a little effort. Try something new this year!
