Rhubarb is one of my favourite Kitchen Garden crops. Not only does it taste delicious but it also looks lovely growing in the corner of the garden. I find the red stems and large leaves beautifully ornamental. In return for very little effort it will reward you with a bumper crop.
If you want to grow a high yielding tasty vegetable then this is the one to grow. Pick beans regularly when young and you will have a bumper crop from mid Summer until mid Autumn. Runner beans are vigorous climbers and will add height and colour to your vegetable patch.
Enjoying something of a salad revival, Spinach is probably most well-known for allegedly giving Popeye super-human strength - but it's the vitamin C and calcium contained in the dark green leaves which is proving popular with vegetable gardeners once again.
Strawberries are easy to grow and even a few plants can give a plentiful supply of sweet fruits in the summer months which are appreciated by children.
Sweetcorn is an extremely popular crop and children love it too! The reason is simply the sweet tender taste of a freshly harvested sweetcorn cob with hot dripping butter ? you can?t beat it. It is very healthy (without the butter) and is a good source of fibre and Vitamin B.
Highly nutritious and one of the easiest vegetables to grow, it will withstand a certain amount of neglect and still brighten up your vegetable patch. Some people find it bitter but with the correct cooking and seasoning can become an essential crop to be used like spinach or the stems stir fried in oriental cooking ? well worth a shot at growing.
Tomatoes produce abundant delicious fruits in many different colours, shapes and sizes. They are easily grown in gardens, greenhouses or containers and are loved by children and adults alike. A must grow for any budding fruit & vegetable grower.
