4 Vegetables For Your First Garden

Skip the Overwhelm By Planting a Beginner Garden

Tomatoes

  • Full sun (at least 6 hours)
  • Neutral to slightly acidic soil
  • Consistent watering

Bush Beans

  • Full sun (at least 6 hours)
  • Neutral to slightly acidic soil
  • Consistent watering

Sweet Bell Peppers

  • Full sun (at least 6 hours)
  • Neutral to slightly acidic soil is best, but peppers can tolerate slightly alkaline soil as well
  • Soil that drains well. Peppers need quite a bit of water (around 2 inches per week), but soggy soil is not tolerated and can lead to disease.

Carrots

  • Full sun
  • Neutral soil
  • Soft, loamy or sandy soil that’s about 12 inches deep
