Organic Vegetable Gardens: What to Grow?
One of the biggest challenges in veggie gardening for CountryLife4Me.com readers is trying to decide what to grow. There are so many factors to consider. Recently, I received a question from a reader about what grows well in Orlando, FL. Seems one of her main challenges is hateful bugs, particularly aphids. Sound familiar?
When I am planning my vegetable garden, I take into consideration several factors.
Zone (or average temperatures)
Sun condition needed
Variety best suited to my region
Ease of growing
Soil condition needed
Pests and disease problems in my area
My general patience with care versus my level of desire to grow
Each of these variables affects the likely success of the plant. And, what might be challenging here (read: winter squash and tomatoes) won't be in warmer climates. Not that those challenges will stop me from growing tomatoes, but that I will keep in mind they will require extra care...and extra care = extra time and energy.
