Every gardener knows that some vegetables are easier to grow than others. Pickier plants need a lot of care and coaxing in order to grow and mature properly. Other plants simply need to be planted in the ground, watered when needed, and then, the next thing you know, you have ripe vegetables ready to harvest and eat.
But what’s the easiest vegetable to grow? There must be one that tops the list; one that produces a ton of vegetables without taking up a lot of your time. It’s easy to name the top five of these, but harder to come up with just one plant. Out of all of the vegetables that grow in the United States, zucchini should be at the top of the list.
