Answer: In my experience, most vegetables do fine in rocky soil with the exception of longer varieties of carrots. The soil may be difficult to work, though, and for that reason you might consider using raised beds to help avoid the rocks. Since you are starting a new garden, I would also suggest you run some basic soil tests to help you determine what amendments, if any, need to be added when you first prepare the soil. Finally, some of the easiest vegetables to grow in my experience are potatoes, sweet cherry tomatoes, peppers, spinach and chard, early peas, zucchini, and herbs such as parsley, dill and chives. If you have room, sunflowers and pumpkins are fun to grow, too.
