Spring is upon us and for many of us, we are spending all of our time safe at home. So, what are you going to do with all of your time? Have you given much thought to gardening?

I have found though that there are some veggies that are easier than others to grow. 

If you are new to gardening too, these vegetables are easy to grow! Having success at the beginning of your gardening journey helps to motivate you to keep up with it.

Easiest Veggies to Grow for Gardening Newbies


Lettuce is awesome for new gardeners, because it grows so quickly! As a newish gardener myself, I love planting lettuce. It is so exciting when you plant something and see it sprouts just a couple of days later. The lettuce I recently planted literally sprouted in just 5 days.  If you are doing your gardening with kids, this is a great one to keep them interested. 


Radishes are very popular vegetables for newbie gardeners to grow because they are so fast! Literally. They can go from sprout to full harvest in just 20 days. That is FAST!!!

Zucchini and Summer Squash

Zucchini is my absolute favorite vegetable to grow. They do need warmth and lots of moisture. The great thing about this is that you can even be a procrastinator since later in the season is the best time to grow them. Once the squash starts to grow, it grows fast.  We love zucchini in our family and I have made so many delicious recipes with it!   Happy Gardening!
