Grow Anything (Almost) Anywhere

Before seed ever hits soil, take time to plan where to plant. There are endless options for growing a new vegetable garden, including movable containers to make the most of sunlight or aboveground beds that allow for better control of soil quality, water runoff, and weeds. Small, single plants like herbs can be grown in larger disposable food containers (think coffee cans). A yard isn’t even required: Patios, small decks, or windowsills with enough light can all be excellent places for a bountiful garden.

The Secrets of Soil

A garden begins with the soil. The secret is understanding that not all ground soil is created equal. There are simple at-home tests that can be done every season to help gardeners better understand their soil’s natural nutrients, texture, or pH levels. Once these elements are known, fertilizers or nutrient amendments can be added to enhance the soil to create the best conditions for success. Continue soil care with homegrown compost that stabilizes pH and attracts welcome guests—earthworms!—that dig up beneficial nutrients from deep within the soil.

Grow, Care for, and Harvest 32 of the Most Popular Vegetables

The most popular vegetables in any grocery store can be grown almost anywhere with patience and planning, including being aware of frost dates and nature’s signals for when to plant. Create a garden with plants that grow well together, making the most of space and soil quality while also providing protection against pests. After planting, the real fun begins with care instructions unique to each variety, techniques to prevent disease, and tips on how to harvest and store the “fruit” of all of that labor!
