I’ve had luck with tomatoes and squash. Cucumbers, potatoes and onions are easy as well. The only issues I’ve had are with tomatoes (keeping the soil from drying out in the Texas heat) and the squash (they were eaten up by slugs and snails).

Plant everything in nice straight rows, set up a drip line snaking through each row, attach it to the faucet using an automatic timer, and voila!  No need to water!

Good point! Also, set up a rain barrel. I have two and water my garden for free! Now the yard is another story, but at least my veggies get good clean free water. 🙂

@Mrs. Aardvark:  Tomatoes, cucumbers and string beans are the easiest things I’ve found to grow.  Our area has a local botanical garden/gardners club, and that can be a great resource for what grows well in your area and what doesn’t.  Also check out farmers markets- they are usually willing to answer some questions while you check out their produce.  The big thing is usually when you need to plant- like I live in NC and we can start a lot of veggies in February because they can grow before it gets to hot in the summer.  When I lived in NY, you couldn’t plant until sometime in late April/May because it would be to cold.  Thats why local advice is soooo helpful.  

 

@imnotarunner7: You can start herbs inside- now is actually a great time to do so, and move them outside when it gets warm.

Sugar snap peas, zucchini, cucumbers…all pretty easy to grow!  I have pretty good luck with tomatoes, too.  Somehow I offed my rosemary this year, though… 🙁

I am in the Great Lakes region and I had good luck with tomatoes and cucumbers.  (We had all that heat and the cucs did great!  They just needed to be watered a LOT.)
