According to The Farmer’s Almanac, the following vegetables are the easiest to grow. I’m not entirely convinced about the beans, as they depend heavily on soil temperature and type around here. What say you?
“Growing beans is a snap—especially the bush varieties, which require no thinning or staking. The plant utilizes nitrogen from the air to produce some of its own fertilizer. See more about beans.
Radishes need no fertilizer other than what is added at planting time. When seedlings emerge, thin them to 2 inches apart. See more about radishes.
Beets are another easy-care root crop. Both greens and roots are loaded with nutrients. Thin young beets to allow room for the roots to develop. Wondering how to use beets? See our recipes with beets.
If you love tomatoes, try the cherry varieties. They are much less susceptible to diseases. ‘Sweet 100’, ‘Sun Gold’, and other varieties can be picked from the plant and popped right into your mouth! Most ripen before the first frost.
Zucchini plants are awesomely productive. By mid-July, your neighbors will be locking their porch doors so that you can’t “give away” excess gourds. Fortunately, zucchini is versatile in the kitchen; serve it raw, steamed, boiled, fried, and baked in casseroles.
Here’s an easy Zucchini Bread recipe that makes a great breakfast or quick snack.”
