Easiest veggies to grow

Whether you want a fast crop for your fall garden before the cold hits, or an easy spring salad garden, these 10 veggies are super quick and easy to grow.

If you’re new to gardening, you may want to start out by growing something super simple and easy. These 10 easiest veggies will hit the spot, and give you a great sense of accomplishment while getting your feet wet in your first garden, so they’re great for beginning gardeners.

But even if you’re an experienced garden wizard, sometimes you will want to plant some short-season crops to fill in blank spaces in your garden, prolong your garden season into the fall, or get an early start on your tasty garden veggies first thing in the spring.

Here are the 10 easiest veggies to grow, and the best season to grow them in, as suggested by Zukeeni.com.

1. Radishes – Fall/Winter

Very easy to grow , takes barely a month between sowing seeds and harvest. Seriously. Seeds can be sown every week (even through summer.) The three main types are: round, long and daikon.

2. Salad Greens – Spring/Summer/Fall

There’s nothing tastier than a salad harvested from your own garden. Crispy romaine, soft butter, or fresh baby greens, all are delicious. Pick a favorite or plant all… your salad awaits.

3. Green Beans – Summer/Fall

Green beans are easy to grow, harvest and eat! Pole beans grow up walls and fences, perfect for small spaces. Bush beans are shorter, more compact, but provide aplenty.

6. Tomatoes – Summer

There are so many varieties of tomatoes, you’ll never taste them all. #bummer We’re sorry, but no matter what your climate, you’ll be able to find several that grow well. #silverlining

7. Basil – Summer

Basil got big in the ‘90s. Everyone realized how great it tastes in Italian food. It’s an easy-growing herb and produces all summer long. Use in salads, soups, baked dishes, so many options.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
