The Garden Guy: Bullet proof veggies

Bullet proof veggies for the summer months - Remember that the garden needs 6 hours of sunlight daily, preferably with some afternoon shade. You may want to consider using raised beds because they provide excellent drainage and it's easier to mix in the 2 to 4 inches of recommended compost and mulch. Artichokes are fantastic, not only for their fruits but also for their strong architectural form and silvered foliage. If you decide to plant these be sure to plant with a lot of compost, because they guys are heavy feeders
