Hey Friends! Ok, I am so excited to share with you guys the 11 easiest vegetables to grow at home. It’s really weird, but as calming and relaxing gardening could be, it can also be super intimidating. Especially for those of you that have failed multiple times just growing indoor plants or even succulents. But don’t worry, that was me 6 years ago! I promise after you read this post, it’ll give you the confidence to get back into the gardening game! Now, I’m going to tell you the 3 little secrets you need to know to grow beautiful vegetables. Ok, don’t tell this to ANYONE.

#1 Good soil 

#2 Sun 

#3 water 

And of course, the other tip I can give you is a little TLC. Seems simple enough right? In truth, I was not always into gardening. I kind of just fell in love with it. As a kid, I used to make fun of my mom about it when I was younger. And now my younger sister every time I see her sad fiddle leaf. Oops! I love to tease them, but in truth, gardening is really hard work! Falling in love with gardening means falling in love with failure and mistakes, and learning from them. I absolutely loved the process of growing my crops and flowers from seeds to seeing them grow into fruit. It’s the most amazing feeling! Especially when you harvest your crops and you get to share them with your family and friends. And today, I’m going to share with you my post: The 11 easiest vegetables to grow this spring. 

  1. Tomato 

This was one of the first vegetables I grew when I first started growing. There is a flavor to home grown tomatoes unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. It’s so sweet and delicate and delicious! If you’re a beginner, Ii would just start with 1-2 plants. You can also grow these in containers. There’s 2 kinds of tomatoes: determinate and indeterminate, https://bonnieplants.com/gardening/learn-tomato-growing-terms/

Determinate tomato plants stay pretty small usually around 3-4 feet. Once the fruit matures they won’t grow anymore.

Indeterminate tomato plants are more wild. They can get really tall, but the best part about this, is that they’ll continue to produce fruits until frost. Some of my tomatoes were produced until November last year. But they need a good support system! 

  1. Pepper 

Peppers are super easy to grow! You can find peppers such as jalapeno, bell peppers, thai chili peppers, and shishito peppers at pretty much any nursery. They don’t need much maintenance and they have a good yield. 

3.) Zucchini 

Zucchini is super easy to grow and we love eating the flowers! All you need is a stick to keep the zucchini up and it’ll just thrive under sun and good soil.

4.) Cucumbers

There are so many different cucumbers you can grow. These make great salads and snacks and pickling for us. All you need is a little structure for them to climb. This is great for those people with very little space. Growing the cucumbers vertical is great. 

5.) Herbs

The awesome thing about herbs is you can grow them indoors too. Stop wasting money buying those store bought herbs and grow your own! You don’t waste the herbs or your money from using it one or two times! Easy Herbs to grow at home would be mint, rosemary, thyme, cilantro, basil, sage.  

6.) Eggplant

Eggplant is one of my favorites vegetables to eat and grow! No pests and very low maintenance! Just remember to put them in a sunny spot. They need at least 6 hours of sun!

7.) Lettuce 

If you don’t get much sun where your house is, then you should grow lettuce. This is because lettuce is super easy to grow and they’ll thrive in the shade. Not to mention, they’ll keep growing as you’re picking their leaves.

8.) Swiss chard 

Swiss chard is so delicious! During the summer we love making smoothies with swiss chard in it. It’s great braised or in salads! You can also plant them in pots too!

9.) Snow & sugar snap peas

Good sun and soil will drive these peas wild. Remember to build a trellis for them to climb vertically.  These peas are so sweet and delicious and are the perfect additions to throw into our salads!

10.) Squash 

Squash and zucchini are best friends. That’s why I like to grow them next to each other. There are so many different squash varieties to choose from. Most squash needs a trellis but if you have space you can just grow them in the ground too. 

11.) Beans

We love pole beans! These climbers are so fun to watch them grow! Put them on a trellis and they’ll thrive under the sun. 

Just remember to have fun. if you fail, it’s ok! The awesome thing about gardening is you learn from your mistakes and that’s how you gain the experience! Happy gardening everyone!
