List of Vegetables


When it comes to a list of vegetables to grow, the most common question I am asked by beginner gardeners is "what are the best vegetables for me to grow?" Well... the shortest answer comes down to two words. "That depends." The longer answer is a little more complicated and usually starts with, "What

vegetable zone do you live in? What direction is your vegetable garden oriented? Have you prepared your soil with the nutrients your vegetables need to be healthy?"

The answers to these questions and more are located in the various pages of our website which will prepare the beginner gardener for the following;


List of Vegetables
You Can Grow in Your Vegetable Garden

This can be a tricky question like asking "how long is a piece of string?" It all comes down to preference and taste. That said, if you are a beginner gardener, than I suggest you first try those vegetables that are the easiest to grow. As you gain experience and develop your own gardening technique and learn from some failures, and yes there will be some of those, you will be ready to try growing a few of the more finicky vegetables in the following gardening seasons.

Because this website is primarily for the beginner gardener, I will start with a list of vegetables that are the easiest to grow.


  • Planting Tomatoes

    Growing tomatoes is the most popular vegetable choice for beginner gardeners as well as seasoned gardeners. Tomatoes are easy to grow and without a doubt, are sure to be found on any kitchen table. I can honestly say, you have never experienced the true taste of a tomato until you grow your own.

  • Bush Beans and Pole Beans

    You have two choices of beans you can grow, bush beans and pole beans. Both types are covered in our list of vegetables. This choice of vegetable plant to grow is a great addition for you and your family at the dinner table.

  • Growing Broccoli

    Growing broccoli has increased in popularity over recent years to become one of the most favorite garden vegetables grown by beginner gardeners. Experience your food as you never had before, by adding home grown tomatoes to your salad and you own broccoli complimenting your main meal.

    Snap Peas and-Snow Peas

    This is a perfect choice if you want to introduce your children to the joys of vegetable gardening. Once they taste a freshly picked pea from the vine, they can't wait for more pods to grow for yet another munchie. Don't be surprised if you find slim pickings leftover on the vine for your kitchen table.

  • Growing Peppers

    Who doesn't like a fresh crispy salad to start you meal off on the right foot? And, what is a good salad without the addition of a crispy pepper to give it just the right taste.

Here is a note worth keeping in mind for the beginner gardener. If this year is your first attempt to try you green thumb, take a moment and read our article beginner gardening before you rush out to purchase your vegetable plants.
