There is nothing that says “summer!” quite like the taste of homegrown fruits and vegetables. The sense of satisfaction that comes from expending your own efforts in the garden will make the fruit of your harvest even sweeter! Vegetable gardening can be scalable to any size and as easy or complex as you want. 

If you’re new to growing your own edibles, Van Putte Gardens is a great place to give it a try; our Green Thumbs love a fresh meal straight out of the garden and will help you choose the best plants for your tastes, available time, and garden set-up, whether that’s in the ground, a raised bed, or containers. If you’re a more experienced gardener (or just really gung-ho!), we’d love to talk with you further about different gardening techniques like organic gardening, city/apartment gardening, and mixing veggie plants and herbs with flowers.

Gardening is particularly satisfying when done with kids and grandkids – they absolutely love seeing the daily changes in fruiting plants, and harvesting becomes a real event with little ones! We grow all our own vegetable plants from seed here at Van Putte’s, meaning you’ll get especially healthy and well-cared-for seedlings to start your garden. Or, pick up a bag of organic potting soil and choose from our wide variety of garden seeds to start your own! There is very little cost involved to give it a try and the new healthy habits you create will be a benefit for the whole family, so stop in and check out which veggies, fruits, and herbs are in season now!
