Among the easiest vegetables and fruits to grow are strawberries, carrots, cucumber, beet root, lettuce and other salad greens. But if you would like to also grow some daily staple foods, tomatoes, pumpkins and potatoes are easy crops too.
Tomatoes do not only take on varying shapes and sizes. They also vary in the length of time they take to reach maturity and produce ripe crop. Some take as little as 49 days, while some take as much as 100 days. Tomatoes are really easy to grow. But they strive better in warm, sunny weather than in cool weather.
Various types of potatoes take different time frames to mature. And there are many different types of potatoes, so make sure to get information about the type you want to grow. However, they are easy to care for and will produce a very large yield. Soggy soil is not suitable for growing potatoes, as they grow better in well- drained soil.
There are hundreds of varieties of pumpkins to choose from for growing in your garden. They are very low maintenance and prefer sunny weather. Smaller pumpkins mature quickly, while larger pumpkins take more time to mature.
