There’s nothing better than cooking outdoors on a balmy summer evening, and grilled veggies are one of my favorites on the Bar-b-que. This collection is designed to let you grow and grill right in your own back yard.

Asparagus is a French heirloom variety used to create the popular white asparagus so beloved in France. Unlike most Asparagus varieties that do not start producing for at least three seasons, the Argenteuil will produce in the second year.

The Golden Wax Bush Bean was first introduced in the early 1870s. It is a compact, bush type snap bean, growing 16 to 20 inches tall.

yellow summer crookneck squash has been an heirloom favorite for over 150 years. An abundant producer of yellow-skinned, white-fleshed fruit. To get a head start on the season, Yellow Crookneck can be sown indoors in pots, 2-4 weeks before the last frost.

Zucchini is such an amazingly versatile vegetable, and this ancient Italian favorite is both easy to grow and prolific for several months.

The Bull Nose Bell Pepper is a handsome, medium sized heirloom pepper with thick, sweet flesh. As they ripen, the sweeter and milder they become. Also known as Bell or Large Sweet Spanish, this variety is highly productive, sturdy, and disease-resistant.

Argenteuil Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis)

Argenteuil Asparagus is a French heirloom variety used to create the popular white asparagus so beloved in France by blanching the plants while they are still in the ground. It was developed from an eighteenth century variety known as Purple Dutch in Argenteuil, France between 1860 and 1862.

Renowned for its excellent flavor and fine white stalks, it is affectionately called “the most elegant of all vegetables”. Fortunately it is just as delicious left unblanched where it will naturally produce lovely, tender green stalks with purpled scales.

Unlike most Asparagus varieties that do not start producing for at least three seasons, the Argenteuil will produce in the second year. Keep in mind that a properly managed asparagus bed can furnish delicious spears every spring for 10 to 20 years!

Growing asparagus allows the home gardener to enjoy freshly harvested stalks, which are noticeably sweeter and juicier than any that can be bought. You will be amply rewarded for all your patience and effort.

Golden Wax Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)

The Golden Wax Bush Bean was first introduced in the early 1870s. It is a compact, bush type snap bean, growing 16 to 20 inches tall that rewards the gardener with an abundance of crisp, succulent 5 to 6 inch long golden beans bursting with a bright, sweet, nutty flavor. Pods are stringless, and straight, with small light-green legumes inside. Like most beans, this productive plant is very easy to grow in northern and southern climates, and is suitable for the home garden or for the patio in containers.

Early Yellow Crookneck Squash (Cucurbita pepo)

Easy-to-grow and deliciously tender, this yellow summer squash has been an heirloom favorite for over 150 years. An abundant producer of yellow-skinned, white-fleshed fruit, they are perfect lightly steamed, with a little olive oil or butter and shredded basil leaves. Yum!

To get a head start on the season, Yellow Crookneck can be sown indoors in pots, 2-4 weeks before the last frost, then transplanted very carefully. Pick them young, when 6-8 inches long and harvest every other day when plant is producing heavily.

Cocozelle Zucchini (Cucurbita pepo)

Zucchini is such an amazingly versatile vegetable, and this ancient Italian favorite is both easy to grow and prolific for several months. Cocozelle’s soft flesh, with contrasting green stripes, has a slightly nutty flavor. The fruit, seeds and flowers are all edible, but what I like about this variety is that the fruits stay slender even at 12″.
These little beauties will be one of the first things you can harvest from your baby food garden and like all zucchinis, taste best when harvested young.

Bull Nose Bell Pepper (Capsicum annuum)

The Bull Nose Bell Pepper is a handsome, medium sized heirloom pepper with thick, sweet flesh. Bull Nose peppers grow to well proportioned, 3 to 4 inch boxy fruits on 24 inch high plants, ripening from a grassy green to red. As they ripen, the sweeter and milder they become. Also known as Bell or Large Sweet Spanish, this variety is highly productive, sturdy, and disease-resistant.

With a delicious, snappy taste not found in commercially grown varieties, bull nose peppers have long been esteemed. They were grown in Thomas Jefferson’s garden at Monticello and became the most popular variety during the 1800s. Bull Nose Bell peppers are still grown at Monticello today.

Sweet Red Pimiento (Capsicum annuum)

The Sweet Pimiento Pepper has one of the lowest Scoville heat ratings of any chili pepper. The peppers are an attractive heart shape, growing 3 to 4 inches long and 2 to 3 inches wide on sturdy, compact plants. Ripening from a dark green to a rich red, their flesh is succulent and sweet.

Vigorous, productive and early maturing on a 16-24″ plant. Sow seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last spring frosts. Transplant after danger of frosts into rows 12-18″ apart. Needs warm conditions day and night to germinate, grow and fruit well. Pick fruit at peak of color upon maturity.
