Tomatoes are a good one. You can buy plants at your local nursery, home store or big box store. That would be the best way for a newbie to go with them. You could grow them by seed, but you need a lot of work and luck to get them going. Another good one is cucumbers and squash (like zucchini, it grows prolifically and you will be giving it away if you are not careful - LOL). Go to the library and get a couple of gardening books, they can usually help a lot. You don't have to start big. When my daughter was 3, I bought a mobile home with a HUGE yard in a trailer park. I have a garden about 15 by 15 the first year and she helped with it. By the time we moved out 7 years later, it was about 50 by 50 and I was growing enough that I had to buy a small chest freezer, it would no longer fit in my refrigerator freezer. I also canned a lot as well. GOOD LUCK!!!!!
