Enjoy perfectly fresh produce by growing your own veggies and herbs!
Home-grown arugula is especially strong and peppery. Pick a handful for a flavorful salad, or to make some Smoked Salmon and Arugula Rolls.
Lettuce likes cooler weather, so it does best in spring and fall. It can also grow in small spaces, which makes it ideal if you want to plant some of your garden in containers. If you get tired of salads, use your lettuce as you would a taco or wrap, such as with these Chicken Caesar Lettuce Cups.
You only need to plant one or two zucchini plants–they yield so much fruit that there are gardening jokes about them. Luckily, there are tons of delicious zucchini dishes you can make. Try our Zucchini Noodles with Pistachio Pesto or our Zucchini Blondies.
Cucumbers are another fast-growing crop. They grow tall, so they do well in containers. They also like lots of water. They’re light and refreshing in a Watermelon & Cucumber Salad or Cleansing Cucumber Lemonade.
