The Bairds’ Fa­vorite Easy-Grow Ed­i­bles

Milwaukee Magazine - - Dining -

SPINACH

One of the ear­li­est and most re­li­able vegeta­bles to plant in spring since it’s cold-hardy.

POTA­TOES

Plant the pota­toes, eyes up, in con­tain­ers or grow bags start­ing in late spring.

SWISS CHARD

Not heat-sen­si­tive, so they can with­stand a hot sum­mer. Plant it by seed in late April.

GAR­LIC

Hard­neck cul­ti­vars do bet­ter than soft­neck in our cold cli­mate. Plant as cloves in the fall about 30 days be­fore the ground freezes.

LEAF LET­TUCES

Plant ro­maine, mesclun mix and the like by seed in late spring or late Au­gust.
