You Can Eat A Meal A Day Incorporating Food From Your Garden

Dan Gill

What if you made it your mission to incorporate at least one item from your vegetable garden into at least one meal every day? This is easy to achieve with your fall and winter vegetable garden thanks to the vast amount of greens and lettuce that can be grown during these months.

Bulletproof vegetables you can plant into your garden now include beets, cabbage, carrots, celery, garlic, collards, kale, leeks, lettuce, mustard, onions, radishes, shallots, swiss chard, and turnips.

Beets, carrots, radishes, and turnips are root crop vegetables that need to be planted directly into the vegetable garden. This is direct seeding.
