Arugula. It takes 21 days for baby leaves to grow for arugula. Not only that, but it’s also really easy to grow. A great combination!
Baby carrots. Make sure you select early maturing varieties that can be harvested within 60 days. They’re also really sweet and good!
Bok choy. For the baby stage, you can harvest them after 30 days. These small ones are great for stir-fries, soups, and salads.
Kale. From 30 to 60 days, you can harvest kale. Earlier it will be smaller, but it’s still great for all different sorts of meals!
Lettuce. There are tons of different types of lettuce, but they all grow relatively quickly. Most lettuce can be ready within about 30 days to harvest!. You can harvest radishes after about a month or when it’s 1-inch in diameter. They’re flavor is great for all sorts of soups and salad.
Green onions. Once they get about pencil size, you’re good to harvest them (usually about 6 inches tall). Green onions are great for all sorts of cooked recipes.
Spinach. This plant is great because it is vitamin rich and grows in most climates. It can be harvested between 30 and 45 days after planting.
Swiss chard. Harvest when the leaves are about 3 inches and you can use them for things like fresh salads. This should take about 45 days to mature.
Turnips. The great thing about turnips is that you can use both the roots and greens. If you plant in the winter, the plant will become sweeter, too!
Contender bush beans. At about 50 days you can get strangles beans. These are stingless and about 6-8 inch pods.
Snap peas. I love snap peas, so I’m so happy they grow quickly. At about 55 days, the sweetly flavored peas should be edible and good to go.
Tatsoi. This is a not-so-common plant, but it’s a quick grower. It has a mild mustard flavor that goes great with all sorts of different dishes.
