Starting A Vegetable Garden
There are so many varities of vegetables that it can be overwhelming to a beginner. Pay close attention to the instructions on the seed packet or website to determine temperature and planting times.
Pick a location that is easy to access for weeding and watering. It is also helpful to plant close to a water source (garden hose hook up) for consistency and convenience.

It’s no secret that our very own Katie Couric has a green thumb. She’s got a lush flower garden that’s brimming with bright-colored florals, and she also grows a ton of vegetables that she uses in various recipes — like her incredible zucchini muffins, made with the squash that was grown right in her backyard. But that’s not all our gardening goddess is cooking up. She’s got a whole slew of fresh produce and herbs sprouting up this summer, and she’s inviting all of us on a tour.
In a video posted to her TikTok, Katie takes fans behind the scenes of her latest harvest. She opens the video by showing off her impressive haul of squash and green beans. Then we mosey over to the herb garden, where she’s growing basil, among other greens.
Then, Katie shows us more of her veggies. She’s got lettuce and cucumbers that she says are “about to pop.” (Maybe she’ll incorporate the cukes into a delicious cucumber salad or a spicy cucumber margarita?) She’s also growing jalapeños, because we know Katie’s not afraid of a little kick — her killer guacamole recipe incorporates a healthy amount of the peppers to give it that burst of heat. Finally, she showed off her tomatoes. “Sun golds are my favorite,” she said.
