I planted all of the top 10-- guess I'm average. Rolling Eyes I wanted to do easier stuff this first year, but I plan to at least try a couple new things next year once I get the hang of it. I'm not a very adventurous veggie eater, but growing it myself is piqueing my interest, so I might branch out a bit.

I think those 'also recommended' must include everything that's not on the top ten list.

tdktara.....I think you'll find you'll enjoy more veggies when you grow them yourself. I'd never eat spinach, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, eggplant, squash, zucchini or parsnips until I grew them myself. As you can tell from the list, I enjoyed very few veggies in my life. This year I've added turnip to the garden, another I'd never normally eat but I'm willing to try.

I wasn't keen on the Swiss chard or brussels sprouts but am growing chard again this year. No one in the family cared for the Brussels sprouts so that's off my list. I think cooking the chard differently might improve the flavor so I'm giving it another chance.

So be daring. Try something you don't normally eat. You may surprise yourself.

This year I have gotten adventurous and have actually planted some of the "recommended" things. I planted some kale, purple kohlrabi, turnip, and Beet this year. My thinking is if we grow it maybe we'll eat it. Right? Wink This is the first year I've actually focused a little more on my Spring crops instead of going straight for the summer crops.

I'm not a fan of raw tomatoes, either, but it's been a long time since I've had a fresh one. My grandpa used to do all our family gardening back when I was a picky kid, but since I've grown up, I haven't been around any gardeners. I'm going to give it a try, but my husband likes them, so if I don't eat them, he will. I'm growing three romas and two vining types and plan to make sauce out of the romas.
