List Of Vegetables


A list of vegetablesYou remember Mom saying, “Eat your vegetables.”  And as you grow wiser, with a year or two behind you, you realize what good advice that was.  With your new healthy lifestyle, you know that vegetables are an essential part of any smart menu.  Whether you’re balancing your diet with vegetables or choosing a vegetarian approach to eating, you’re finding yourself more energetic and even more content – it’s just natural.  And maybe the new saying, “Grow your vegetables” could be added to the good advice column.

 

Tomatoes – Ok, they’re a fruit (technically) but no garden and no menu is complete without the versatile tomato – easy to grow and edible straight off the organic vine in your garden.

Beans and Peas – There are so many varieties, Fresh beans and peas can make the most of a soup or a casserole.  If you’ve got a vegetable garden climbing varieties make economical use of space.

Squash – Take your “pick”: Summer squash, Yellow, Butternut, Acorn, Spaghetti, and many more.  Easy to store and easy to grow.  In vegetable soups, casseroles or baked on their own, squash is a great, healthy addition to any meal.

Lettuce – Again there are so many choices, Leaf, Romaine, Iceberg, Boston, put these in your garden on your shopping list.  Try the early “baby” leaves for a nutritious and delicious salad.

Carrots – In vegetable soups, casseroles, in so many cooking uses.  Carrots are in fact one of the basic ingredients in classic French cuisine.

Onions – Again a basic in any dish.  Onions can be sweet or hot and add a zest to a hundred recipes.  For the home gardener, they nearly grow themselves.

Celery– Another basic.  Good in vegetable soups, dressings, salads.  Tricky to grow but fun to eat even all by itself.

So many vegetables can be grown organically in your home garden or just enjoyed in your cooking – Spinach (try this in your vegetable lasagna), Cucumbers, Potatoes, Greens (so many different types) Okra (jambalaya necessity), Bok Choy, Cabbage, Broccoli, Asparagus, Beets, Corn, Peppers… and so many more all in many types and varieties, and all so delicious. Eat your vegetables!
