Squash is part of the cucurbit family (Cucurbitaceae). Winter squash includes acorn, butternut, buttercup, and Hubbard, while summer squash includes yellow squash, zucchini, and bush scallops. Both groups are warm-season vegetables and are easy to grow in well-drained, fertile soil.
The Fabaceae family, to which the green bean belongs, is unique in its ability to partner with nitrogen-fixating bacteria and fungi to maximize nitrogen availability to current and future crops. Green beans are exceptionally easy to grow and even easy to hybridize.
Most brassicas, some root crops, and greens can withstand temperatures as low as the upper teens and still thrive. Vegetables like turnips need frost to convert starches to sugar, changing their taste profile completely. Cool-season plants grow best in colder temperatures.
Depending on several variables, a carrot can take between 32 to 95 days from seed to harvest. Variables include seed germination time, seed soil temperature, growing environments, cultivar, hybrid, size requirements, and soil health. Carrot crop management is another factor.
Parsnips require similar care to their sister carrots, including deep, sandy loam oil. Their quality improves when harvested after a hard, killing frost. This same process of starch to sugar conversion caused by frost can be achieved if roots are refrigerated for a month before being consumed.
