I have to admit, I struggle with the so-called “easy” to grow vegetables. Talk about a brown thumb. I mean, if you can’t grow even the simplest vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini and beans, then what can you grow? Is it a lost cause? I am here to tell you that all is not hopeless and there are plenty of other fruits and vegetables that you can grow that may perform better for you.
One of the most rewarding parts of homesteading is learning about the many varieties and cultivars of fruits and vegetables you can grow. Rather than sticking with the standards you find at any grocery store, caring for and tasting so many new kinds is a pleasure! Fruit trees, like all perennials, and the occasional fruiting vines, are a great addition to a homestead, especially when looking to implement permaculture.
