Gardening is a fabulous hobby and growing organic vegetables is a beautiful idea, which is not hard to practice at all. In fact, it’s a lot easier than you might think! Now, take a look at the following list of 6 easiest vegetables to grow in your organic garden and let your green thumb loose!
Apart from being yummy, crispy and peppery, radishes are also incredibly easy to grow. They thrive in all climates, and they grow all year round in temperate zones.
They mature quickly and require very little maintenance. All they need is soil enriched with organic compost and water. Plus, they rarely suffer damage from diseases and pests and they are ready for harvesting only 4 to 5 weeks after planting the seeds!
Zucchini is another very easy-to-grow vegetable, as it needs very little attention. They require only plenty of water and they grow like crazy! People usually end up having more zucchini than they can ever cook!
Zucchini usually sprout in two weeks and they are ready to be picked up about a month later. You just need to keep the plants well watered and the soil well fertilized, and once they’ve matured, you’ll be able to steam them, grill them, bake them, fry them and prepare many other exquisite dishes.
And remember that fried zucchini blossoms are also a real delicacy!
This deliciously sweet and tasty root is definitely one of the easiest vegetables to grow.
Beetroots require damp ground to germinate and some water every day. That’s all! Once you’ve planted them, your seeds will germinate within 10-14 days and you will be able to pull and eat your beets after approximately 8-12 weeks – they don’t take much time to mature at all!
Just remember to always keep the soil moist and never let it dry out, otherwise your beets will become woody and tough.
And enjoy your salads!
Crunchy, healthy, and packed with beta carotene, carrots are definitely another great and easy-to-grow choice.
They need very little attention during their growing period, and being cool-weather vegetables they can be planted even before the last frost has passed. They are rarely attacked by pests, but just like any other root, they require a very healthy, light and airy soil.
Carrots take a long time to germinate (about 2 to 3 weeks), but they are ready for harvest only 2 to 3 months after planting.
This green leafy vegetable prefers cooler climates, but is very easy to grow. When the leaves are big enough, they can be picked off, and other leaves will just continue growing!
It is good to plant them in early spring or autumn (depends on variety) and water them regularly during hot weather.
Spinach seeds will germinate after a week or two and the leaves are usually ready to harvest only 40 to 50 days after planting!
Onion is another vegetable that needs very little attention and care! Once you’ve planted your seeds or bulbs, they will grow quickly and you will only need to water them frequently during hot weather.
Your onions will be ready for harvesting when their green tops fall over and start to turn yellow. Then, the onions can be dug out of the ground and stored. So easy!
