5. Sunflower

If you want their seeds or want to see them, sunflowers are the perfect choice for gardeners from the beginning. In terms of fertilization, they don't need much. They can survive except for the wettest soil, and they are especially good at weathering and drought.

As the name implies, these flowers really need clear, unobstructed sunlight. Keep your sunflowers outdoors and make sure they are away from any other plants you might grow, because a row of tall sunflowers will cover nearby vegetables with unwanted mulch.

8. Pumpkin

Pumpkin is not only super easy to plant, but also has a very high yield. Your garden will be in mass production in a few weeks, enough to feed a small army. To get started, at some point between early spring and midsummer, dig an inch deep hole in the ground (although in practice, one or two plants may be enough).

The depression should be very far, about 3 feet; In each crater, there are two or three seed chambers. Make sure the dirt is warm and always wet (regular coverage will help you).

You can start harvesting in six to eight weeks. Because new zucchini are sprouting to replace the pulled zucchini, you will soon reap rich fruits. A single plant can produce a value of 10 pounds in one season.

You can grow mixed vegetables almost anywhere, even on the windowsill. Lettuce is a cool loving crop, which can be cultivated in spring and autumn. This is not important to the crowd, so take a jar and generously sprinkle these seeds.

Broccoli rabbit is another cool seasonal vegetable that deserves a place in your garden. The new gardener only needs to know that the bolt is very fast, so he can harvest as soon as he sees the bud, and cut it about five inches below the bud.
