Start by grow­ing easy crops

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES -

Broad beans, pole beans, bush beans, peas, green onions, pota­toes, spinach, radishes, beets, chard, kohlrabi and let­tuce are all pretty much fool­proof. Leeks, parsnips, gar­lic and zuc­chini take a lit­tle longer, but are also easy to grow. You can sow the seed for these or plant seedlings in the gar­den through May. Think twice about car­rots and cab­bage be­cause they can be prone to pests and dis­eases. Broccoli and cauliflower take a lit­tle more skill.
