Tomatoes and strawberries are lovely to have in the garden if you've got a sunny enough spot. Herbs are handy because you generally only need a few leaves for a recipe, so don't have to go out and buy a whole bunch only to waste two-thirds of it because it's gone off before you get to use it.
Tomatoes-Spinach-Pumpkin....all seem to be the top ones.
We bought $100 worth of all kinds of seeds, over many months....and my daughter in law said theses were the best.She is a very good gardener, so I take her advice.
As for all the many many others, there seemed to be little 'hiccups' with
a lot of them, and needed a lot more attention.
I think herbs a good choice because they are expensive to buy, but can actually be quite prolific when you plant them in a trug. They don't need a huge amount of room either. Other vegetables think can be grown quite well in the garden are lettuce and cabbage.
It depends on how big your garden is! Pumpkins and zucchinis are great to grow in larger gardens during warmer weather, while cherry tomatoes and loose leaf lettuce can easily be grown in pots, even in places where gardens are quite small .
