Vegetable Information

veggiiesGrowing vegetables is very popular with Oklahomans. Some grow them for economical reasons, others do it for the enjoyment of gardening and being outdoors. Many are attracted by the quality, taste and freshness of the crop, as well as being able to grow some vegetable varieties not found in local markets.

As with many projects, a successful vegetable garden depends on organized planning. OSU Extension has a bounty of useful information to help you get started. The most often requested OSU fact sheet is “Oklahoma Garden Planning Guide”. This and other information resources are listed at the bottom of this page.
