Vegetable Gardening Tips
One of the prime advantages of vegetable gardening is getting to enjoy the taste of your own produce. The flavor of fruits and vegetables is dependent on their harvest time. Harvest too early or too late, and it won’t be quite as good. When you buy produce from your local supermarket, it’s often harvested at a time that is optimal for a longer shelf life, but not for taste.
If you want to fully enjoy the flavor of the vegetables that you grow, you should aim to harvest them the morning you plan to eat them. You may be surprised at the flavor you can get from these freshly ripened fruits and vegetables. For instance, tomatoes that you find a store are often ripened in storage rather than on the vine. If you grow your own, you can let the tomato sit on the vine and mature to full flavor.
