With so many options available, picking where to start with your garden can be overwhelming. 

Here is what I recommend:

Salad Greens  Tomatoes  Cucumbers  Kales are amazing!  Snap Peas  Beans Zucchini  Sweet Peppers

A few of my favorite VEGETABLES  for beginner gardeners:

All pretty straightforward to grow from seed and will provide an amazing harvest

I always enjoy growing radishes and carrots because of ease of direct sowing and the variety on the market. 

Nasturtiums Calendula Marigolds Sweet Peas Zinnias

A few of my favorite FLOWERS  for beginner gardeners:

Pick flowers pollinators love, edible flowers, and others that work as great pest deterrent
