What are the best vegetables to grow in your backyard?
When selecting vegetable varieties to grow in your garden, select ones that you or your family enjoy eating. Next consider how much space you have available. Vine crops, like squash and cucumbers, require quite a bit of space. Also, consider whether you're going to plant in the garden or grow vegetables in containers. Vegetables like lettuce, peppers, carrots and radishes are some favorites for containers, but many other vegetable varieties, especially those with compact habits, are also suitable for containers.
