Radishes are the fastest growing vegetables out there. In 3 to 4 weeks you could be harvesting your own little spicy nuggets to add to your salads.
2. Baby Carrots
Baby Carrots are big enough to start harvesting after about 30 days.
3. Green Onions
If you've ever placed a bunch of green onions in a glass of water to keep fresh you know that they will start to grow new stalks almost immediately. Planting green onion seed isn't much different. About 3 weeks after sprouting you can start snipping them and adding them to your salads and recipes.
Once lettuce varieties like Romaine are 3 inches tall you can start harvesting. This usually takes less than 30 days. Stagger planting will allow you to harvest fresh lettuce for months.
Spinach is a lot like lettuce and can be harvested very quickly. Starting around 4 weeks you can start to harvest baby spinach leaves.
Think about how tasty and tender baby spinach is. Now you can enjoy your own greens in no time.
6. Turnip Greens
Planted early in the spring or early fall turnip greens are one of the fastest-growing greens to harvest that you can grow.
Turnip greens prefer cool temps and do best before the temperature hits 75 degrees.
Much like lettuce they will bolt in high heat sending out flowers that will turn to seed. The heirloom Shogoin Turnip will serve you both Turnip greens and lovely white turnips. Harvest the leaves in about 30 days and the lovely pure white turnip roots which are tender and mild in 70 days.

7. Bush Beans, Snap Beans or Green Beans
Early Contender Bush Beans are one of the fastest bush bean varieties you can grow. In as early as 6 weeks you can start harvesting fresh beans from the garden.
8. Baby Eggplant or Patio Eggplant
2020 is my first year growing eggplant in a container and I couldn't be happier. Less than one month after transplanting the eggplant plants I have harvested baby eggplants.
When planting patio eggplants that have been bought as starter plants from a local nursery fruit begins to set as soon as you see flowers around 45 days. The compact Patio Eggplants are perfect to grow in containers.
Thornless plants make harvesting the long growing season that lasts until the first frost painless and easy.
Eggplant fruit is ready to harvest when they are 2 to 3 inches long.
