Carrots and peas have outstanding flavor and crispness when home grown. Pole beans and zucchini are among the most productive and easy to grow vegetables per square foot. Growing sweet corn takes up more space, but is especially delicious when fresh picked. Green beans, peas and corn can be easily frozen at home to store for winter use. In this video I discuss:
