Easy To Grow Vegetable Garden Plants

Gardening is a hobby enjoyed by many people and is beneficial to family and friends when a person is able to create a productive crop to share. For a person who is just beginning to garden it is always best to grown garden plants that have been proven to be easy to grow and disease and bug resistant. When a person starts with these types of plants they will have quick success and will be inspired to continue with the hobby.

There are several easy to grow vegetable garden plants that will grow in most summer climates of North America. A person can check with their local nursery or neighbors in the area to see what grows well but can also choose from hardy plants that should be easy to cultivate.

Specific Vegetable Garden Plants

One great garden plant to grow is zucchini. These plants are quite hardy and will stand up to temperature extremes as long as they have adequate water and room to grow. One zucchini plant will produce large amounts of squash that can be used fresh or frozen for later use. Other squash plants are similarly easy to grow but sometimes require a longer growing season than is available.

Tomatoes are another popular garden plant that are fairly easy to grow in a vegetable garden even if they are considered a fruit. The grower should ask for advice on plant varieties that are better growing in the local area. Cherry tomatoes tend to be quite easy for any area. One thing for a person to be aware of is that tomatoes do attract worms and there are some diseases which will quickly destroy the plant. A great way to grow tomatoes is in large patio containers where the plant is easier to monitor.

Green beans also tend to be quite easy to grow. These garden plants will require staking as the plants like to climb and vine up. The plants are nice because the beans will ripen throughout the season providing a constant vegetable source for the season. The crop can also be canned or frozen for later use.

One other garden plant that is quite easy to grow is corn. The exception to this is that corn does require a lengthy time to produce its crop and areas with a short growing season may not be best suited. If the plants can be started early and then protected from late season frosts the gardener may still be successful even with a short season.
