Tip 1: go for exclusive
The cultivation of spinach or green beans is still very good in the summer. The growth is now very fast. However, a lot can go wrong with this cultivation and if you look in the supermarket, these vegetables are cheap and plentiful.
Go for some surprising vegetables that you won’t find in the store. Raddiccio or red lettuce, for example. If you grow the Red of Verona variety, you’ll have a nice red head of lettuce after winter, which is especially delicious stewed in olive oil. Dill and palm cabbage are also good examples of special herbs and vegetables, which are limited in supply and easy to grow from the summer onwards. The gooseberry is a delicious and beautiful berry and is exclusive.
Tip 2: avoid sprouting plants
Green vegetables such as lettuce, celeriac, beets, endive and spinach grow much better and faster if you sow them after the longest day. In the spring, these vegetables tend to, shoot out with a flowering stem. For vegetable garden beginners, celeriac is a fun and easy plant. Arugula is also recommended.
