Tomatoes, which can also be grown in pots, are one of the most consumed and widespread vegetables and which can be produced repeatedly. If you want to get more than one harvest per year , the trick is to divide the seedlings. Easy to grow in just a few steps with a result like real farmers.
Even asparagus, excellent allies for health , are a vegetable that allows you to have an annual harvest without the need to replant them. The only problem is that, before producing a truly consistent one , you will have to wait 3-4 years . To plant this vegetable you don’t need too much space and even a small portion of land behind the garden is sufficient.
Kale, which offers an abundant harvest every year, is a winter vegetable capable of resisting the cold and can be used as ingredients to prepare many dishes. To obtain a continuous harvest it is advisable to cut only the leaves , leaving the stem so that it remains about 5 cm above the ground. In this way, after a few weeks, the leaves will grow lush again and ready for a new dish.
4) Jerusalem artichoke

Jerusalem artichoke is a tuber with a thousand properties and a very low caloric value. In fact, 100 grams contain only 73 calories.
