Allan’s Vegetable Favorites

Hello Gardening Friend!

I’ve been vegetable gardening since I was a kid and have tried a lot of different vegetable varieties. This list represents the ones I have tried and liked, and some others that I have been told about by better gardeners than myself. I hope this helps you select your seed this season, and that your garden is a giant success as a result. Remember that good seed is only a start. A properly prepared garden soil is the key to good plant growth and high yields. Enjoy!

For answers to your gardening questions, tune-in to AM 740 and FM 102.3, NEWSTALK KRMG every Saturday morning from 10am to 1pm.

Best regards and happy gardening!
