Most veggies are relatively simple to grow with a little TLC.

Mickie, if you can give us a bit more information on how much space you have, what gardening zone you're in and how much time you can devote to taking care of it, we can help you more. :)

Any big likes or dislikes would be a good idea too! I'm sure we can find plenty you could try. :)

I have a lot of luck with tomatoes and cucumbers every year. Green beans are another good one that grows pretty well. I hear you about the food prices.

We had a small garden when i was growing up and we had basil leaves. It must be easy to grow since our gardon was blocked by buildings from the sun most of the day.

My grandfather used to plant some fruits and veggies in a vacant lot beside our house. He had there, bananas, papaya, guava, okra, chili pepper and pandan leaves.

start by making a list of what you like to eat. It does no good to grow lots of tomatos if you do not like them.

some things you waste your time... carrots in Missouri are a prime example our clay soil is just to heavy to grow good carrots. and they are cheap.

I think potatoes are the easiest vegetable to grow, and a fresh dug tater tastes wonderful - nothing like their starchy supermarket cousins. The secret is to hill them as they grow, because the spuds grow from the stems you bury as you hill them.

I am particularly fond of the fingerling varieties. Read this article:
