Do you have an empty patch of land in your back yard?
Do you want to earn money?
If you answered yes to both these questions, then it’s time for you to get off your couch and start gardening! Growing and selling vegetables to neighbours or friends may be an old school way of profiting from your property, but it still works!
Getting started may be more convenient than you think, especially when you stick to these easy to plant and sell vegetables:
Radishes are ideal for novice gardeners, since they can grow even on small containers!
Spring radishes grow within 3 weeks from planting and have a mild flavour, while those grown during the summer are spicier in comparison to the spring variety, thanks to the hot summer soil they grow on.
Here’s another mind blowing tip about radishes: one radish contains only one calorie! So even if you aren’t able to sell for money, radishes are still great in helping you maintain a healthy weight.
From beauty regiments to salads, and even flavoured water- cucumbers are an all around star in every modern household.
It’s ideal to plant cucumbers in a plot where they can stretch their roots. They also don’t grow well in cold weather, so it’s better to plant them during warm and sunny periods.
Here’s a pro tip! To produce extra crunchy cucumbers, you’ll have to feed them regularly with organic matter and fertilizers!
Like radishes, basil can be planted on pots or plots of land, that’s why novice gardeners won’t have any trouble planting them. They thrive in rich, moist soil where they can soak up as much sunshine as it can. Harvesting is also a breeze, since you’ll just pluck the leaves when they reach the right size.
There are different kinds of green beans, although they appear to look to the same.
Bush beans are abundant in summer and are a staple side dish for many of my mom’s friends because of the crunchy texture and health benefits! You’ll get a lot of yield for every harvest of bush beans, especially when you plant them in a well-drained soil.
Pole beans, although easy to grow like the bush bean, requires a trellis to grow on, while broad beans are the easiest to cultivate compared to bush and pole beans.
This category of plants doesn’t just begin and end with the lettuce. It also includes micro greens, head lettuces, leaf lettuces, spinach, and arugula- all of which are easy to plant and maintain!
You can get good produce when you plant them during spring and fall. You’ll also have to sow the land where they are planted on every 2 weeks and space out their harvest within every few weeks or so.
Bugs Bunny’s favorite snack is also a big favorite for many home gardeners, because you can prepare and serve it in a hundred different ways.
Carrots thrive on sandy loams, which are deep and rock free- this is crucial so that the carrot’s roots have enough space to grown on. Aside from that, carrots planted on rocky soil usually come out crooked.
I hope I’ve given you fresh ideas to create your very own moneymaking garden. Until the next time!
