    What's your favorite plant to grow in your vegetable/herb/fruit garden?

    I love growing food to eat in my garden. I have a vegetable garden, some berry plants and herbs. I love growing cherry tomatoes, raspberries and pineapple sage. What's your favorite plants to grow?

    Cherry tomatoes, potatoes, basil, onions, garlic, and peppers are my favorite. As long as I have thee I can make meals without having to buy much. I have yet to try fruits, but I would love to grow blueberries and figs.

    For John it is some variety of tomato (we have grown many varieties including Big Boy, Better Boy,  Beefmaster, Beefsteak, Bragger, Giant Belgium, Mortgage Lifter...). I am mostly Canadian and Irish; however, my stomach is Italian (I suspect a significantly covert organ transplant; yet I have no proof). Thus, the versatile tomato, the primary ingredient of my Italian loving gastronomically centered activity is ideal...

    No, I'm kidding.  I do not have a garden.

    I love to grow tomatoes and peppers. I love to see them in groups. I also love growing pineapples because they require less maintenance.

      Yum! I wish I could grow pineapple! It's not completely impossible but pretty difficult since I would have to bring the plant indoors during the winter months!

    Tomatoes, because there's nothing like a ripe, warm tomato, fresh off the vine. They're so good, I don't even bother buying grocery store tomatoes. I treat them as seasonal fruit, like cherries, and only eat them from the garden.

    Okra, because it's easy, prolific, and so pretty. The flowers look like hibiscus or rock rose. I can pretty much just throw the seeds into the ground, and water every other day, and end up with a huge crop.

    Rosemary, because once it's established here, it requires no water or care. Likewise, oregano, which I use as a landscaping ground cover in the front yard.

      I agree, nothing beats a garden grown tomato.  I've bought tomatoes in the store during the winter and they have absolutely no taste!  I didn't realize Okra yield such a big crop, I may need to try that next year!

    Asparagus. It's originally a lot of hard work and expense, but you get year and years of spring produce for a bargain price.
