Tips for an easier harvest
Here are some tips to make gardening in your modular garden more enjoyable and efficient.

it often happens that the first zucchini flowers die off. Don’t panic? It’s normal. After a few days, the female flowers will be fertilized and fruit will soon appear, followed by others.
don’t wait too long to harvest your eggplant. In fact, eggplant has to be picked when immature, otherwise they will be acrid and tasteless. Depending on the variety, pick them when they reach the desired size.
purchase a tutor for your cucumbers, especially for English cucumber plants. They tend to grow poorly and produce less if the foliage doesn’t have adequate ventilation, which is the case when they run along the ground.
Peppers or Chillies
because of the weight of the fruit, it is sometimes necessary to install a tutor to prevent your plants from breaking. Fix the stake close to the main stem and attach the branches that bear the most fruit.
harvest the kale leaves as the plant grows. The younger the leaves, the more tender and tasty they are.
to optimize the space in your modular garden, plant 3 or 4 bean plants together. This will make the plants more compact and allow you to harvest more beans.
Lettuce and Mesclun
