Green Beans

There are a wide variety of green beans which means you will never be bored of this plant. Some green beans, like tomatoes, will require a trellis to support the vines, but there are others that can just be planted in your regular pots or planters. The best part about growing these vegetables is that they will benefit whichever plant comes next. Green beans are known to improve soil fertility and allows for a more flexible garden base.

Basil

Basil can enhance your home cooked meals tenfold! No more dried basil to flavor your pasta sauce, go pick it fresh from your backyard garden. Basil is a very popular herbs to grow in home gardens. They also sprout flowers and as pretty as they look they are not what you want on your plants- the flavor will quickly fade once these flowers start to bud, so pruning them often is best.
