Summer Vegetable Gardening
A summer vegetable garden can provide an abundance of fresh delicious veggies for our family to enjoy.
If we can grow these veggies as per our likes and needs at our home only; in the balcony, backyard or just on the terrace, we can harvest those any time we want.
Fresh, crisp peppers are a garden favorite. Peppers take up little space and can produce high yields when planted close together.
Plant as many different varieties as possible. They come small, big, hot, mild, and an array of different colors. Start seeds indoors for best results.
Start planting beans now that the soil and air are warmed up. Try a continual 7-10 day sowing of different varieties. This will give you continual bean crops and not one large harvest with wasted crop.
The most popular garden vegetable. Growing tomatoes is not only fun but treats you to some of the best tasting fruits in the world.
Grow a few varieties every year to find your favorites! You may want to think about buy transplants in May.
We can use them raw for salads and dips or cook them in a wide variety of ways, including squash “french fries” and such classics as zucchini bread.
One of the most rewarding and fast growing crops to grow. Corn is delicious when cooked only minutes after being pulled off the stalk.
Try a small plot of corn, working your way to a large field of several varieties.
Fast growing vine or bush cucumber plants can produce an abundance of cucumber fruits. Be careful to pick a variety for the space you have in your garden.

Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil:
In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
Buy Decorative Pebbles :
Decorate planters or garden landscapes with these decorative pebbles :
Using pebbles in a garden brings different colours and textures to the garden. Pebbles can also fill up otherwise empty space in the garden, leaving a visual that might be considered more interesting and aesthetic than simple dirt, soil or mulch.
