Easy-to-grow vegetables and herbs in your garden
Radishes are some of the easiest vegetables to grow. The ideal temperature is between 60 to 65 degrees F and the plants mature in just 18 to 45 days. That's fast! Radishes grow best with full sun to light shade and well-drained soil.
When you get basil from the grocery store, it typically comes in a large bunch. And unless you are cooking for a crowd, chances are a lot of that basil is going to spoil. When you grow your own, however, you won't have that problem. Just plant basil seeds directly in the soil in a full-sun area. When the leaves get to a good size you can break them off and use them whenever you want.
