Can you recommend a vegetable to grow in my garden that is nutritious and stores well?


Q. I know that the one magic vegetable has not been found yet .but I do have a garden in southern Oregon ,, any ideas on a vegetable that stores well and is very nutritious ..Thank you for your time.


A. I’m happy to hear you have a vegetable garden! The type of vegetables a gardener grows is based on food preferences, your climate, and maintenance time.  I recommend you review our Gardening Tips and Vegetable Database which provides nutrient info and storage recommendations for a variety of vegetables.  Also, variety is key!  Eat and drink a wide variety of fruits & veggies every day for overall good health.
