Vegetable Gardening in Port St Lucie
Gardening in Port Saint Lucie
After moving from a townhouse in East Port Saint Lucie to a house in St Lucie West our large backyard encouraged us to start our long awaited gardening plantings. We started with plants and fruit trees that take the longest to mature and ended up planting an avocado tree, a mango tree and a Ponderosa lemon tree that bears lemons as large as a grapefruit!
The next and most recent venture was creating a vegetable garden that so far has tomatoes, green beans and different herbs including basil and tarragon. Our newest discovery was the easiest way to plant green onions that would literally last forever and with a little patience, we might not have to buy green onions again. The method is very simple, just cut the top of the onions where there are some roots visible, put them in the water and wait for the roots to get stronger and the green part starts sprouting. When the green onions reach couple inches in height just plant them in good soil and soon you have plenty of green onions. If they grow real big the beautiful flowers will add charm to any vegetable garden. Happy Florida gardening!
