As the days lengthen and the sun grows stronger, many of us are champing at the bit to get our gardens started. Seed catalogues are being pored over, dog-eared, and circled, and some folks may have even begun to order vegetable seeds in preparation for-->

Wouldn't mind trying to grow some of these. Sun chokes are very tasty - would they work in a large pot?

Sun chokes expand exponentially in the garden, so if the tub were large enough, you could grow a few. My favorite perennial veggie is asparagus. Productive in the spring, after the first two years' of growth, and pretty ferny things the rest of the time. I found garlic chives to be very fussy, and garlic's so much easier to grow, but regular chives are wonderful! I grow scarlet runner beans, because they're so darn pretty, and keep producing until a hard freeze, but they can't take a cold winter.

Perennial veggies! This is genius! The older I get the more I want perennial any-kind-of-plant to cut down work!

used to grow lots of vegies- tomato/ cucumber ,/ squash/ spicy pepper / corn... now only mint/ peach-pear- figs on our trees... too tiring to do the work, also way too many allergies ...

Good info here, thank you. It's been years since I had the space to grow veg in the yard, but I try to make do with pots on the back steps!

These vegetables should all be more common, especially the neglected Good King Henry.

President Obama has started making Vegan options at all his dinner parties. He is learning the humane way. Right on President Obama
