Process of Growing Vegetables

The process of growing vegetables is straightforward. Give vegetables what they want and wait patiently. With careful planning, gardeners may harvest vegetables for several months out of the year.

Time Frame

Vegetables fall into two categories--cool-season and warm-season. Cool-season vegetables, such as broccoli, lettuce, carrots and peas, prefer moist, mild temperatures and are planted early in the spring to be harvested by early to midsummer. Warm-season vegetables, such as tomatoes, beans, corn and peppers, need daytime temperatures above 23.9 degrees C. These crops are planted after the last frost and mature by late summer to early fall.

Considerations

Most vegetables require at least six to eight hours of sunlight per day to grow well. They'll grow in a variety of circumstances, from a large plot to patio containers. They prefer evenly moist, well-drained soil, amended with organic matter, such as compost or rotted manure. Vegetables require weekly maintenance to remove weeds, control pests and disease and ensure adequate water.

Harvest

Vegetables are mature when the fruits or roots are of a good size, but before they dry or shrivel. Some plants--such as carrots, corn, beets and radishes--produce one crop, while tomatoes, peppers, beans and zucchini produce continuously until the plants are killed by frost. Broccoli and lettuce are cut and allowed to produce more stalks. Fast maturing varieties are helpful for gardeners in cold climates.
