For a kitchen garden , a gardener with limited skills and time should consider planting different kinds of pulses and bean seeds. Most other types of seeds do not germinate quickly and the plants do not survive for a long period of time. For example tomato seeds will germinate and grow only during specific times of the year, when the weather is not too warm.
In contrast most of the pulses will germinate fairly quickly and the germination rates of the seeds remain high. Within a month, these plants will flower and beans will be growing in the kitchen garden, which can be used for cooking or replanting. However the seeds are usually smaller the commercially available seeds indicating that some fertilizers are being added.
