I’ve always wanted to grow a garden. Unfortunately, school, work, laziness, etc. have prevented me from doing this. Also, I don’t know the first thing about gardening. How to make a garden, which vegetables to choose, and when to plant certain vegetables are important questions to ask yourself when considering growing a garden.
Today’s infographic makes it easy. It describes the best times to plant certain vegetables that would make great additions to any garden. Peppers and tomatoes for the perfect pasta sauce, kale for you superfoodies – it has them all. It also has some helpful pro tips for how to store and prepare different vegetables to maximize their shelf life or health benefits.
This infographic is not just helpful for gardening, but also for anyone who has an interest in buying local produce from a supermarket. For instance, if your local grocery store has green beans in December and they are claiming it’s local, something is up. Time to have a little chat with the manager.
Whatever your reasons, take a look at this infographic and learn about the best times to grow vegetables. From the farm to your table, it never hurts to know a little more about what you are putting in your body. [Via]527
