Planting some vegetables, what are the easiest ones that you have grown?

Really? I found tomatoes to be one of the hardest vegetables to grow. I think it was mainly cause I was in a colder climate in the summer. Cucumbers for me are easiest.
I was lying in bed the other night, looking up at the stars, and thinking, "Where in the heck is my roof?"

I've always grown tomatoes with no problems. Some lettuce varieties might be easy to grow. Good luck!

It seems like I have more luck growing peppers all year long. I do grow lettuce, but it dies out in the summer here in Texas. I like different variesties and they all seem to grow by just scattering the seed in my container beds, then covering them. Radishes grow the same way, but they have to be thinned and don't do well here  in the summer. They get hard and HOT during the summer months. Glad to see people are growing their own veggies. You will enjoy your food more knowing that you raised it and the only chemicals on it are the ones you spray it with.

I find tomatoes are easy to grow. I have a huge garden and radishes and green onions grow fairly quick. remember to make sure there are no walnut trees around your garden. You will get beautiful plants but no produce. Walnut trees are bad for the garden. Happy Gardening

I grow everything. Radishes are easy...and fast growers.  Green beans from the garden are great and easy. I think every vegetable is easy if you plant according to directions.  Things will grow because they want to grow. Don't forget to water, if you don't get rain.

Being growing veggies for about two years now, the easy ones for me are cucumbers and squash.

If you have lots of sun, I'd say tomatoes and basil.  I'm in California and they grow nicely off my back porch, sitting in the sun for most of the day.

yellow squash and zuccinni grow like crazzy. One day all you see is blooms and you are watching them grow and the all of a sudden you will find a big one hiding. Makes good zuccinni bread yum.

 :thumbsup:  Good question however I HAVE NO IDEA.  I have tried tomatoes which if watered, fed and the weather is good grow great.  I had fun growing potatoes with the kids.  I took old potatoes that had roots and berried them in a barrel with lots of soil.  as they grow you have to continue to add more soil while being sure to water and feed just enough.  It was a little bit of work but a fun experience for the kids.  I think the onion is the easiest as you can take an old onion plant the roots and water and watch the green sprout. Know that I think about it I have grown peas and they took little work and we had them most of the summer. But if the weather is bad growing anything can be a challenge. 
Here's to lots of sun, rain during the weekdays, when most are a t work and lots of worms to help move the soil.
