Here is a list of the top easiest vegetables to grow!

Carrots- 
Be sure to plant carrots in soil that is free of rocks and deep enough for a root vegetable.

Green Beans- 
There are many types of beans but broad beans are the easiest to manage. Pole beans are easy to grow but need a trellis

Lettuce- 
Do successive sowings every two weeks to space out your harvest.

Spinach-
Pick continuously once leaves are of reasonable size to encourage new growth.

Cucumbers- 
Be sure to provide ample space for your cucumbers, they tend to spread out!

Tomatoes-
With water and a lot of sun, tomato plants will continue to produce all summer long!

Radishes-
Ideal for beginner gardeners, easy addition to add diversity to your garden.

Peppers-
Hot or sweet peppers are an easy way to add flavor to your meals, and they are easy to grow! Like tomatoes, starter plants are widely available!

Summer Squash-
Squash is a high yielding plant so don’t over plant! Harvest when they are about 9 inches long.

Onions-
If you want your onions to taste a bit sweeter, give them more water than you normally would.

And some easy to grow fruits as well!

Watermelon-
Harvest time is key when it comes to watermelon. Here are three methods for testing the ripeness.
-Thump it. If the watermelon sounds hollow, it’s ripe.
-Look at the color on the top. The watermelon is ripe when there is little contrast between the stripes.
-Look at the color on the bottom. A green watermelon will have a white bottom; a ripe melon will have a cream- or yellow-colored bottom.

Cantaloupe- 
Once fruit begins to grow, prune end buds off vines. Your plants may produce fewer melons, but they will be larger and of better quality.

Strawberries-
Strawberries require 6-10 hours a day of direct sunlight, so choose your planting site accordingly.
