Spring is the most active season for gardening since there is a lot of vegetables that like its weather. The ground is still damp for some vegetables to be planted and the weather is a bit chilly, but there are some that can deal with these conditions just fine.
I already have my own list of vegetables to plant in spring, and I’m going to share it with you.
Potatoes love a bit colder temperatures, and they are safe for spring planting. They thrive in loose soil that is well-drained and require constant moisture after planting. My garden fulfills all the requirements to grow a healthy potato, so it will be the first vegetable I plant this spring. Check for more details here.
Carrots are great for springtime, and you can easily plant them in a pot. Just like potatoes, they love the chill weather and should be planted two weeks after the last frost date. Get a pot that is at least six inches deep; twelve would be the best, and as wide as possible. Fill the pot with well-drained and aerated soil so the root can grow freely. Water the carrots regularly and keep the soil moist. See complete instructions here.
Lettuce can be grown in pots very easy, so it can fit gardens of all sizes. Spring is the perfect time to plant lettuce, but if you’re in a subtropical climate, then plant it in the winter. It takes only eight weeks for lettuce to be ready for harvest.
Choose a pot that is at least six inches deep and fill it with compost. Water it frequently and give it plenty of sunlight. There are a couple of more things to pay attention to when planting lettuce, they are all here.
Like most of the root vegetables, radishes don’t mind the weather that is not that warm. Plant them in spring, and they will reward you with a great yield. I have a corner in my garden that gets a lot of sunlight, although they shouldn’t be exposed to the sun for more than six hours.
They are planted about an inch deep into the soil and two inches apart, so they don’t shade each other. By watering them and thinning them from time to time, they will grow happy and healthy. Follow this guide and get plenty of nice looking radishes.
Fast growing, cold-loving, easily grown in a pot, beets are a great addition to the spring planting festival. I got a couple of hollow containers which will make a great place for beets.
They are about ten inches deep, and that depth is just right for the beets to grow properly. They like soft soil rich in nutrients with a lot of compost and regular watering. Check the details about pot planting beets here.
There’s nothing like a soup made of fresh peas. This season I will plant them just so I can make some good soup. Got a container ready for them, and they are fine with just a couple of inches of soil.
I’m going to place them near radishes so they get plenty of sunlight and to water them at the same time. Get to know the details about a containers in this article.
Kale is a perfect vegetable to be planted just a few weeks after the last frost. It loves the cold, and it doesn’t have a bitter taste when it’s grown in such temperatures.
I’m going to plant it in a container and add it to the rest of the spring family. I’m going to fill the container with some loamy soil, and I’m ready to go. Get some more detailed info in this article.
For me the best way to make this collection of spring vegetables is to organize them in containers, you can have a different approach if you have a lot of quality soil in your garden, just make sure to fulfill the requirements of each vegetable and make your own collection of vegetables to plant in spring.
