Eating Out.....Of Your Own Garden

While the catalog is on its way you might just want to check out all the new vegetables on our website.

Growing your own vegetable garden has gained momentum and is still going strong. There are a few steps to make your work easier.  One of these is to select plants for your garden that will help control garden insect pests.  There are plants that contain certain properties that either invite beneficial insects or repel the harmful bugs.  Beneficials (bennies as we like to call them) prey on pests that cause damage in the garden.  One good example of beneficials is Ladybugs.  You can reduce your workload by introducing plants that attract those beneficals.  It will also reduce the amount of insecticides that you use in your garden.  The fewer the chemicals, the more good bugs, in turn means less bad bugs.

Here is a short list of some plants that can help in attracting good and/or distracting bad insects:  Basil, Borage, Chives. Lavender, Marigolds, Nasturtiums and Petunias.  Some of these can be planted with your veggies and others can be planted around or near your vegetable garden. 

Our staff is always available to assist with any questions you might have on growing a vegetable garden and plants for pest prevention.

America's Favorite Vegetable of 2019

From Vegetable Growers News:  Green Giant polled thousands in the United States and released the results in time for National Eat Your Vegetables Day, June 17th.  The survey was conducted from April 26 to May 10, 2019.  It asked five thousand American consumers ages 13 to 73 to name their favorite vegetable.  The results showed that for the second year in a row, broccoli was favored as number one, with 39 states choosing it as the favorite.  Check out the map to see what vegetable was favored by each state.  Not a surprise, Wisconsin won with corn.  Don't forget to eat your veggiesheart.
