  1. You will want to plant the easiest fruits and vegetable to grow in your garden when first starting out as a novice gardener. Since most vegetables and fruits need the full sun, place the garden so large trees won’t create too much shade for your plants. Check seed packages for planting information. Some vegetables, like peas, like cool weather, and others, like tomatoes, need a much warmer soil. Garden seed is economical and provides food full of nutrients and flavor. For gardening success try some of these fruits and vegetables and enjoy fresh food all summer, fall, and into the winter months.



    Try to plant in soil free from stones and rocks, a rocky plot will create crooked and gnarly carrots. Though not pleasing to the eye, they are perfectly fine to eat. When they get to the soil line they can be harvested.



    Squash can be found in many shapes, round, pear shape, elongated, and has a flesh color of yellow to brilliant orange. These are vine plants and harvested when cooler weather sets in. Some people store them for months in a cool cellar or basement. Just a few plants are needed to feed your entire family.


    Green Beans

    Broad beans are the easiest bean to grow, however many other varieties are available such as pole beans, lima beans, runner beans, bush beans, and soy beans. Pole beans are good and are easy to cultivate, but need a trellis to hold them while growing.



    Plant some radishes for instant satisfaction because of the fast growing characteristic. In a mild climate these plants will blossom throughout the winter. A great choice for beginning gardeners!



    This vegetable is one of the easiest to grow, with curled leaves of bluish green, some varieties are red.  Mild winters, cool weather, and fall frosts, help create fine flavor, rich in vitamins and minerals.



    Red, yellow, and green bell peppers, and hot peppers, all can be frozen to be used in winter time for a treat to have reminiscing about summer. They can be used for a crunchy addition to salads or eaten with a vegetable dip. 



    Beets get more fibrous the larger they grow, so they are best picked after growing 40 to 50  days, when they are 1 1/2 or 2 inches around.



    Nothing can beat a fresh salad straight from the garden, whether it is leaf lettuce, head lettuce, spinach, arugula, bronze arrow lettuce, or red mustard greens. Any of these plants are easy to maintain and grow.



    This plant will grow profusely and produces fruit all through the summer. You can enjoy homegrown freshly picked tomatoes all season long. Try Beef Steak, Big Boy, Roma, and Cherry tomatoes for salads, soups, sandwiches, or just plain with a salt shaker in hand. Nothing better!



    Ample space is needed for these sprawling plants, they need plenty of room for stretching out their roots. Try some smaller varieties for canning homemade pickles and plant when the danger of frost is over.



    This is an aromatic herb, great for cooking, and can be grown even in pots indoors on the windowsill. They can be dried and used well after summer is over. 


    Growing fruits yourself is a wise choice because ones sold in stores often are picked and shipped when they are not fully ripe. Some fruits make adorable ornamental plants such as figs and blueberries. There are healthy, delicious, options such as berries, peaches, and melons to start you on your gardening venture.



    Apple trees need plenty of sunshine and grow in well drained soil. They come in three sizes: standard, semi-dwarf, and dwarf. Most people like the dwarf trees because of taking up less space and they bear their fruit at early ages.   



    These shrubs have dainty flowers of white in spring, followed with leaves of scarlet and orange in fall. They generally begin ripening in June and ripen for several weeks.



    Fig trees don’t need a lot of attention and grow into picturesque additions to your yard. Since they are self-pollinating, only one is needed for fruit. They can be grown in containers to bring inside for the winter.    



    Great to use in containers, as well as in the ground. Watch out for hungry squirrels and birds when berries are ripened and ready to be harvested.


    Blackberries and Raspberries               

    Space these sprawling plants in a sunny place, a two or three foot distance apart and in a single row thirty feet long. This will provide berries for the whole family plus a neighbor or two. Blackberries can be purchased in a thorn-less variety also. Give berries of all types well-drained fertile soil and plenty of sun.


    Cantaloupes and Watermelons

    Melon plants can be purchased or seeds can be started indoors at least three weeks before frost is last expected. Select an area with good air circulation and lots of sunshine, keeping them watered until the bearing of fruit and then water less often.


    Dwarf Peach Tree

    The dwarf peach tree is great grown in pots. Reaching a maximum five foot height, it produces fruit the second year. During it’s growing season, place in direct sunlight, keep fertilized and moist. In winter, store in your basement and bring outside in spring.
