Vegetable Garden Quiz
If you’re tired of trekking to the grocery story every week only to find that the produce is lacking or hauling your cookies all the way to the farmer’s market to be swallowed up by a ruthless Saturday crowd, then maybe it’s time to start growing your own vegetables. Take this quiz to see if you’re ready to dig in the dirt and pull out your own veggies.
Which of these veggies is a cool weather crop?
Peppers and tomatoes both like warmer weather, but cauliflower can take on the frost. Plus, it tastes much better in cooler months.
Which member of the nightshade family is deadly?
Tabasco will burn your tongue and smoking may eventually kill you, but belladonna is a poisonous plant that was used to murder enemies in ancient times.
Which of these is not a benefit of companion planting?
Companion planting is often employed by organic gardeners to protect plants from harmful pests and attract beneficial insects. But the only way to stop weeds from growing is to pull them out.
Which of these vegetables is not in the mustard family?
Kale and collards are members of the mustard family, but lettuce actually is the head of its own household. Members of the lettuce family include romaine, endive and dandelion.
Tomatoes are good companion plants for:
Tomatoes repel the asparagus beetle, which is the main destroyer of asparagus crops. Dill attracts tomato horn worms, and black walnuts actually inhibit the growth of all nightshades.
What is an heirloom seed?
Heirloom veggies are harder to come by since the advent of hybrid veggies, which are prettier and more disease-resistant. But most agree that heirlooms taste the best.
