Are you craving fresh grilled vegetables and crisp garden salads? Vegetable gardening season is upon us which means it’s almost time to enjoy all the good eating summer will bring. You don’t have to be a pro gardener to grow your own veggies. It’s easy to grow vegetables in an elevated garden bed like an Eco Garden Systems Original Garden. Here are the top 15 vegetables to grow in it: Tomatoes Peppers Lettuce Peas Beans Radish Arugula Broccoli Carrots Zucchini Beets Cucumber Cauliflower Kale Potatoes The Eco Garden is revolutionary in its approach to growing vegetables with a water reservoir and an Air Gap, which increases the oxygen in the roots of plants. Multiple studies have been done to measure the impact of increasing oxygen absorption in the roots of bearing plants and the impact that has on total fruit production. In the studies, tomatoes and peppers both had an increase in production, some by almost 60%! And the vitamin A and lycopene in the tomatoes increased. Brand new study results from Concordia University in St. Paul confirm these findings and more. You can’t go wrong growing peppers and tomatoes. Lettuce, arugula, and other greens grow quickly in an Eco Garden. Our beginner gardener, Jessica, started a variety of salad greens indoors this year and is happy to find she already has large heads of lettuce in just a few weeks. Radishes also grow quickly in an elevated garden bed. The Eco Garden is excellent at regulating both temperature and moisture, making it an ideal garden to succession plant. This way, you’ll get crops like lettuce and carrots all season long. This ideal environment also allows root crops to thrive, even though they usually don’t grow well in raised garden beds.
