Grow and harvest 2 kinds of annual vegetables

This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the Level 1 badge in Gardening.

For many people, this is what food gardening is all about – growing vegetables like tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, etc.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:

  • Research the growing requirements for several of your favorite vegetables.
  • Choose at least two vegetables to grow which are a good fit for your conditions.
  • Plant the vegetables using seeds or transplants. You may use bought seeds or transplants, or ones you grow yourself.
  • Grow the vegetables to maturity, and harvest them. Some vegetables may be harvested multiple times over the season.

To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:

  • List of your vegetables, with the growing conditions they need
  • Photo of your vegetables being planted
  • In-progress photos of the vegetables growing
  • Photos of mature, harvested vegetables
  • Bonus: photos of the vegetables ready to eat!
