Save Some Time With Fast Growing Vegetables
Most gardeners are a patient lot. You have to be willing to wait sometimes for the harvest to come after the work. It’s standard practice. But that doesn’t mean you can’t speed up the process a bit by choosing some fast growing varieties of vegetables.
Knowing some common types, how to pick between early and late varieties, and the technique of intercropping will all help.
Many varieties of vegetables exhibit fast growth and therefore mature much more quickly than others.
This is generally true among the spring vegetables. Common examples of such vegetables include peas (Pisum sativum), radishes (Raphanus sativus), spinach (Spinacea oleracea) and beets (Beta vulgaris).
There are, however, examples of fast-growing seedlings that grow in summer as well, such as beans (Phaseolus vulgaris).
