Gardening in Utah - Knowledgebase Question

Provo, Ut
Question by junebeez

This is my first time trying to grow a garden. I'm interested in things that will be easy, and not need much attention. I have a shady spot as well as a sunny one. What kinds of veggies will be good to grow in Utah for my first time. I'm also interested in herbs. Any advice for a first time attempt would be greatly appreciated. Is it better to start from seeds or plants? Thanks,

If you are really interested in gathering lots of information about gardening, there's a free online course available through Utah State University. Here's the webiste:

Starting with seeds is the cheapest way to garden and can give you the greatest plant variety. Seeds, though, require transplanting and take longer to mature. Seedlings or young plants are less demanding.

Salad greens, summer squash, onions, sweet peppers, carrots, radishes, zucchini, peas, green beans and tomatoes ? particularly cherry tomatoes ? are among the easiest vegetables to grow.

Best wishes with your new garden!
