easy to grow vegetables

If you are new to gardening, but don’t know where to start, check out this helpful list of ten easy to grow vegetables for beginners including green beans, basil and cucumbers.

I’ve never had a problem growing green beans. You can grow either a bush bean or a pole bean. If you choose the pole bean then you will need to have a trellis that it can grow up.

Cucumbers are another really easy crop to grow. They’re pretty prolific, so unless you plan on canning or preserving them, 3-4 plants should be plenty for fresh eating.


Zucchini seeds should be planted in the ground after the danger of frost has past. Most varieties take 50-60 days until harvest.


Carrots are a cold weather root crop that are easy to grow, but can be difficult to germinate. Make sure your soil is loose so the roots grow straight.


Jalapeños, banana peppers and cayenne peppers are very prolific, but bell peppers don’t yield as much per plant. Seeds can be started indoors 8-10 weeks before transplanting.
