    Lettuce

    Lettuce
    Lettuce is a quick-growing and very useful vegetable.

    Plant a small row every three weeks to ensure a continuous harvest throughout the growing season.

    Lettuce likes cooler weather, and grows well in partial shade.

    It will mature quickly and "go to seed" during hot weather.

    Radish

    Radish:
    Vibrant red, mouth-watering radishes provide the perfect finishing touches to fresh garden salads.

    Crisp, firm, and tender a fresh radish has a slightly pungent flavor that provides tasty eating long before other salad vegetables are ready for harvest.

    Be sure to harvest on time, as they will loose their crispy juicy flavor quickly if over-mature.

    Onions

    Onions
    The onion is one of the most popular vegetable garden pictures.

    It is easily grown in the home garden.

    It can be used in cooking, or in fresh slices on a salad or sandwich.

    Onions can be harvested, and stored in a cool dry place for use throughout the winter season.

    Potatoes

    Potatoes
    It hard to find an American who does not like potatoes.

    Fried, mashed, scalloped, or baked, we all have a craving for spuds.

    Easily grown, simply prepared, and delicious, potatoes are prized for their highly nutritious content of protein, Vitamin C and B, minerals, fiber, and scrumptious taste.

    Cucumber

    Cucumber

    Another favorite of the home gardener, this vegetable is very easy to grow.

    It can easily be trained to grow upward on a trellis or cage, or left to sprawl on the ground.

    Be sure to give the plant plenty of water as this seems to help prevent a bitter taste from developing in the cucumbers.

    Green Beans

    Green Beans
    The favorite green vegetable for many American families.

    Can be grown as pole-climbing or more compact bush varieties.

    This delicious vegetable is great steamed or sauteed fresh from the garden or can be frozen or pressure-canned!

    Zucchini or Summer Squash

    Zucchini Squash
    Also known as "summer squash", zucchini is one of the easiest and most prolific vegetables to grow in a home vegetable garden.

    It has huge beautiful leaves, and large showy yellow flowers which quickly turn into small zucchini vegetables.

    Watch this plant closely, as the vegetables can form and grow to the perfect size in just a few days time!

    Broccoli

    Broccoli
    Broccoli is native to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

    It is thought to be the first of the cabbage family to have been grown.

    Its relatives include chard, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and kale.

    Broccoli was introduced in the 16th century to England as “Italian asparagus“.

    In the 1800, Italian immigrants brought broccoli to the US.

    Today, although it has gotten a bad rep from children and former President Bush, broccoli is quite tasty stir-fried or in casseroles covered with cheese sauce!

    Carrots

    Carrots
    Carrots are believed likely natives of the area today known as Afghanistan.

    Carrots arrived in Virginia with the first colonists to America.

    Carrots are related to parsley, dill, celery, and anise.

    In early history, carrots were used to cure a wide range of ailments.

    The USA is the third-leading producer of carrots behind Russia and China.
