Green beans

Beans are one of the easiest plants to manage. These vegetables will produce bushels of green beans once mature, so do not over plant. Otherwise, you will find yourself canning or freezing quarts of extra produce.

 

Squash, melons, and zucchini

You can start these plants inside to make sure that pests do not kill your vegetables before you get them in the ground. You can put the seedlings outside in mid-summer at the end of June or beginning of July in time for an early fall harvest. Be sure to leave room for the vines of these plants to spread out.

 

Hot peppers

If you love a little spice in your chili, or when jalapeno poppers are on your summer grilling list, then planting a few pots of hot peppers is a great way to have fresh peppers all the time. Depending on the pepper type you choose, you can select a variety or go with ones that continue to produce through the end of summer and into the early fall months.

 

Cucumbers

This vegetable is such a classic choice to grow. Just like melons, be sure to give cucumbers room to grow and water them frequently. A large patch at one end of the garden in a sunny spot is ideal.

 

Tomatoes

No vegetable is easier to grow than tomatoes. While everyone has a story about how to grow the biggest or best-tasting fruit, you can find many varieties to select from at the local garden center. Common types are Beefsteak and Hothouse.

 

Corn

Corn goes back to the time of the pilgrims. For most people, you can simply plant these seeds in a row and give them some water once or twice a week and forget about them the rest of the time. The plant practically grows itself, but you do have to watch out for windy storms.

 

Advantages of regular pest control services

Your garden will be your pride and joy. To keep it free of pests, you may want to consider hiring an outdoor pest control company to keep unwanted critters away from your crops. If you want to stay organic, your pest specialist can offer tips.
