Beginner's Guide to Create A Kitchen Garden
For developing a new hobby kitchen gardens can prove to be really nice. The crops selected for kitchen gardening are usually fresh and are those which can be harvested on a daily basis. Kitchen gardens, mainly due to their natural proximity to your home, also tend to be more formal and aesthetically pleasing. Following are some herbs that can prove to be the right fit for your kitchen garden.
1. Parsley Seeds
Parsley is an herb that serves the best quality when grown fresh. It grows best in well-drained soil and is rich in organic matter. The most convenient way to grow it is direct seeding. It is perfect to grow indoors and for watering it just needs to be thoroughly watered once a week. As with most herbs, parsley does best in a sunny area that receives direct light for six to eight hours a day.
2. Brussels Sprout
They need a site with full sun and enriched with organic soil. It needs steady and consistent moisture. Brussels sprouts grow best in cool weather, but they will sprout from seed when soil temperatures are between 45 and 80 degrees. Regular water is the key to big Brussels sprout harvests. If the soil gets too dry, the sprouts will shrivel and not develop fully. Check the soil regularly and water when the top inch is dry.
Peas have heart-friendly minerals and are rich in antioxidants. They like to flower in a sunny location with well-drained soil. They are quick and easy to grow as well. They make a satisfying component in meals and are enriched with fiber. They can prove to be a good addition to your kitchen garden.
This green leafy vegetable is extremely nutritious and rich in many vitamins and minerals. It likes the full Sun but to not overheat with well-drained and nitrogen-rich soil which is why it can best be grown indoors. It can even be eaten raw in salads and cooked too.
Zucchini, also known as courgette, is a summer squash in the Cucurbitaceae plant family and is enriched with vitamin B6. As it is a summer plant it needs at least 6-8 hours of direct sun every day with moist soil which is filled with organic matter. It can be grown with ease from seeds directly sown in your garden with warm temperatures, warm air, and warm soil with no chance of frost. It can be a great vegetable for your kitchen garden.
