It's getting nice weather, so it is getting extra fun to grow your own vegetables and herbs in your (vegetable) garden!

Do you plan to grow your own vegetables and herbs during the spring? We already put a list on hand for the three best vegetables and herbs during the spring breeding!

With this additional step, you can enjoy during the summer of your own grown food.


To begin with beetroot:



The beetroot is one of the most underrated vegetables ... There is so much to do with it! Tasty roast, cook or make a delicious salad. Red beets are generally very easy to grow. You start with the seeds, they should be soaked for 24 hours and then diluted before you start planting. This ensures that each seed can grow well. It is also important that there is in sufficient space between the sown seeds (about 25 cm).

After only two months, it is ready to harvest!

By immersing the beetroot in the vinegar, the beetroot will have extremely good taste and it is perfect to fill a salad or a sandwich to.

Beetroot is rich in magnesium, potassium, folate and fiber! Eating beetroot is protective against heart disease and many other advantages.

Beetroot grows best in: Subtropical, dry / semi-dry, hot climates and cold climates





The carrot:
