The Q&A Archives: vegtable growing for beginner

Question: i am interested in starting a garden growing vegtables, but i have never had a garden before and wanted to know what are the easiest vegtables to start with for a beginner?

Answer: Welcome aboard! Let me warn you, though, gardening is addictive. I know it sounds corny (pardon the pun) but, things just taste better when you grow them yourself. It is a good idea to start off with the "easier" varieties from the beginning to build your confidence. In my opinion, the most important thing to look for are tried and true varieties that offer disease resistance. Here are some suggestions: For tomato - 'Husky Gold', 'Supersteak Hybrid', and 'Better Boy'. For cucumbers - 'Sweet Success', 'Early Pride Hybrid', and 'Bush Champion'. For beans 'Kentucky Wonder' (consider the stringless variety 'Tenderpod' also), and finally, peas...try 'Green Arrow' or the snap variety 'Super Snappy'. Best wishes with your new garden!
