Top 8 “MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK” Picks for Your Garden

April 29th, 2010


We plant edible garden’s because we want produce, but sometimes it is difficult to pick what to grow. How do you know what edibles are really prolific? With this list we try to take a little out of the guessing game!

Based on last summer’s crops, UC Davis Good Life Garden gardener Arlene Kennedy has chosen the varieties she felt gave us the “MOST BANG FOR OUR BUCK,” and these days, that is what we need! Here is her list in no particular order:

UC DAVIS GOOD LIFE GARDEN PICKS–”Most Bang For Your Buck”

  • Basil ‘Super Sweet Chen’
  • Armenian Cucumber
  • Lemon Cucumber
  • Eggplant ‘Snowy’
  • Chili Pepper ‘Serrano’
  • Squash ‘Dark Star Zucchini’
  • Squash ‘Reve Scallopini’
  • Tomato ‘Chadwick Cherry’

We wish we could tell you where to secure these varieties locally! If you know or have your own “Most Bang For Your Buck” picks, please let us know by commenting on this post!

Happy harvesting!
