What are some of the easiest vegetables to grow in your home garden?
Tomatoes, lettuce, onions, carrots, potatoes, and cucumbers are among the most well known.
They certainly represent the most productive and fastest producing!
For a person who has gardened before..............do not be afraid to branch out to corn, okra, or beans. The " hard " is in the harvesting, not the growing.
Most home gardeners will find that root crops, such as beets, turnips, potatoes and carrots are very easy to grow if their garden soil has the proper nutrients available.
Leafy vegetables like lettuce and spinach also grow well, but tend to prefer cooler weather or shady areas.
If care is taken to select blight resistant varieties, most gardeners will find tomatoes quite easy to grow. Those with limited garden space should consider discriminate tomato varieties as these will be more compact and bushier plants.
Believe it or not, though I live in a cooler climate - called temperate - the vegetable that I find the most reliable and consistent is the cucurbita family - courgette(zucchini), pumpkin, summer and winter squash - no problem to grow, just to get the seed started under heat, is a small challenge. Amazing growth and production, though.
What others have said about the root veggies and the lettuce family is also true - very easy and good production, though I do have to look out for pests, in particular the slugs!
The good old potato is also a very reliable veg that crops well.
Also the ease of some fruit growing can't be overlooked - strawberries and raspberries.
The greens I find the greatest ease with are the chard variety - very productive and the birds and pigeons don't like them, nor the slugs and they can last through to next spring if the winter isn't too harsh. If I plant good old cabbage, though easy to grow, young plants can disappear overnight - slugs, pigeons and in July, caterpillars. A nightmare to look after, until the cooler weather sets and all the pests disappear.
Thanks for the question.
