The Plants

Lettuce

Romaine

Plant to Harvest: 30-60 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful tip:

This lettuce can be harvested as it grows. Remember to not harvest more than ⅓ of the plant at a time to avoid shock. Planting it deeper into the soil will give it more support and keep it healthy as it starts off.

Cucumber

Pickling

Plant to Harvest: 40-55 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful tip:

This cucumber is a bush variety. You can trellis this if you want to, but it’s not necessary. Patio snacker cucumbers are designed to be a more compact cucumber plant. This will allow you more space in your garden. Harvest your cucumbers when they are 6-8 inches in length. This will optimize the flavor and keep your plant producing more fruit.

Squash

Green Zucchini

Plant to harvest: 40-55 days
Space Needed: 16-24

Helpful tip:

Green Zuchhini needs to be planted in full sun with well draining soil. Water your zucchini deep,  and add mulch to keep moisture in the soil. Harvest your zucchini when they reach 6-8" in length for the best flavor. 

Sweet Pepper

Bell

Plant to Harvest: 40-60 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful tip:

Staking your bell pepper plants is a good option to give it the support it needs. Bell peppers do best in full sun and warm weather. These plants will need a deep watering– one to two inches per week. Aphids and flea beetles love bell peppers, so be sure to check for pests often. Like jalapenos, use a sharp knife or shears to harvest the pepper to avoid damaging the plant.

Pumpkin

Plant to harvest: 60-90 days
Space Needed: 48+ inches

Helpful tip:

This green head lettuce is delicious in a salad! It grows fast but requires lots of water. Plant the plug deep to keep it strong when it is first established. This lettuce can be harvested as it grows. Remember to not harvest over ⅓ of the plant to prevent shock.

Bean

Green Beans

Plant to harvest: 30-50 days
Space Needed: 16-24 inches

Helpful tip:

These yummy green beans should be grown on something they can cling onto. This can be a trellis, fence, or anything you'd like to use that enable the plant to grow upwards. 

Tomato

Cherry

Plant to harvest: 45-65 days
Space it needs: 24-36 inches

Helpful tip:

When growing cherry tomatoes, pick off the suckers! Look for where the branches meet the stalk (forming that angular V shape). Take off the small suckers at these meeting points and at the bottom of your plant to use more of its energy to make fruit. Trellis your cherry tomatoes once they reach 6-8 inches of height to support the weight of the fruit on the branches.

Tomato

Saladette

Plant to harvest: 50-65 days
Space it needs: 24-36 inches

Helpful tip:

These tomatoes will grow to be a pear or oval shape. These tomatoes are great for canning, sauces, and salsa. When picking tomatoes, wait until they are red for the fruits to reach their maximum sweetness. If you see sunspots on your ripe tomatoes or cracking, pick them immediately. Trellis your tomatoes once they reach 6-8 inches of height to support the weight of the fruit on the branches.
