Easiest ones for us to grow are pumpkins, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers.

Squash seems to be the easiest for me. Plus I love to eat them.

I have found that tomatoes are the easiest to grow.

Tomatoes are easy to grow if you are in the right climate.  I love home grown tomatoes. Last year we had so many peppers, we didn't know what to do with all of them.

We have found that tomatoes are the easiest to grow in our area, too.  Cucumbers and squash grow pretty easily, too.  We freeze the squash to last us through the winter.  It's nice having all 3 available here!

Wow, I am going to rethink growing tomatoes, I had no idea. Going to do a little research first.
I was lying in bed the other night, looking up at the stars, and thinking, "Where in the heck is my roof?"

I have only tried to grow three vegetables.  I grew squash, cucumbers and tomatoes.  I had success with all three, but I guess the easiest is tomatoes.

I live in Oregon's Willamette Valley and the easiest is Zucchini. In fact it grows so easy there are always more people giving away their abundance you wonder if you should bother. I think the easiest crop with the biggest bang for the buck us bush beans. We plant about 100 bushes every year and have fresh green beans all summer.

  :wave:   I have had really good luck with tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, pumpkin, green beans, peas, radishes, lettuce, peppers, strawberries, beets.    But tomatoes seem to be the easiest.  You can grow them in the ground or in a pot.     The squash like someone else said go like crazy.  So, I take a lot of it and grate it up, put in zip locks and throw in the freezer, then you have it all year round for zucchini breads, or to thrown in sauces.  I am going to try dicing some of it up this year and see how it does.  I use to do a lot of canning, but that is hot hard work.  So the last couple of years I have been experimenting with freezing everything.  There is nothing as yummy as your home grown vegetables!  :thumbsup:        We also like to throw in a couple of fun things like "Golden" beets, and purple potatoes!    We plant vegetables in all our flower beds.

I think anything that grows on a vine is by far the easiest.  Such as grapes.  Other than that I would think tomatoes would be the easiest.
