Growing Vegetables and Herbs

Updated on March 18, 2014

Tips For Growing Vegetables and Herbs

There's something very satisfying about growing your own vegetables and herbs, knowing that you can have super fresh produce right from your own garden. On this page you'll find a list of articles to help you with knowing how to plant, grow and care for these different herbs and vegetables. You'll find "normal" veggies such as tomatoes, potatoes, pumpkins, and carrots, but you'll also find some more unusual crops such as rice, peanuts, and nettles. There are also articles relating to different fruits you could grow at home, including strawberries, raspberries, and avocados.

I am also including tips for starting your own veggie patch, ideas for kids to get involved in the garden, suggestions for what to do with all the marvelous produce you will harvest, and more.

This page is a compilation of my own gardening pages and other helpful articles I have found while wandering around the gardening lenses here on Squidoo.
