There’s no time to wait for another summer to have a veggie garden when you can have one during spring! Coincidentally, some veggie plants prefer cooler temperatures, making them perfect for a springtime garden.
Read on this blog below as we give you the best veggie and flower selections for your springtime garden!
Peas have two kinds of peas: garden peas, which require shelling and snow, and sugar peas which contain edible pods. Whichever of the two that you would prefer, eat and plant them as you like!
When the soil is workable, sow seeds 1 to 2 inches deep and 4 inches apart; 18 inches between rows. For harvesting tips, peas generally mature between 54 to 75 days depending on the variety.
Generally, lettuce is easy to grow, gives off a bumper crop in small spaces, and is pest and disease resistant. Another good feature of the lettuce plant is that they’re great ornamentals! Its vibrant yellow, bronze, and pink and cherry colors will truly create a pop of color in your garden.
For harvesting tips, plant seeds in full or partial shade ¼ to ½ inch deep and two inches apart. These are ready to pick in 40 to 85 days. Remember to use them quickly as lettuce doesn’t keep long!
