Growing a vegetable garden is a thrilling endeavor. Gardeners get tangible results to their hard work, and their loved ones get to reap the benefits! As seasoned gardeners know, however, best growth practices depend heavily on climate and seasonal weather.

Vegetable crops can be classified into two categories; warm or cool season. Each type of vegetable crop needs different growing conditions to thrive; for example, different soil, watering needs and planting times.

Vegetable garden growing conditions for warm weather vegetable varieties include warmer soil with a pH of about 6.5, about one inch of water per week and direct sunlight. The following examples of warm weather vegetables are able to withstand the heat and in fact, require a full day of sun to produce their most flavorful yield.
