I think the best vegetables to plant in your first garden would start with onions and garlic. These are very easy to grow and fairly heat resistant. Spinach is a very easy to grow vegetable as well. Green beans have always done very well for me and who can resist planting some tomatoes. I have actually written a hub on this question, if you would like to read it. I hope I have been of some help. Have a great day! :)
