'The Best' Vegetables
I'm out to get some opinions, if I can. It's easy to find "favorites" lists for tomatoes and peppers on these forums, but its harder for other veggies. Whats worse, seed catalogs make everything sound so good, so it's hard to gauge the real winners. I'm only in my second year of gardening, and this year I'm trying out veggies beyond tomatoes and peppers, but even with most things planted, I have no idea what to expect for results. Would you all be open to creating full lists of your favorite veggies? Preferably only offering suggestions for vegetables that you've tried a few varieties of? Better still, add just a few words about why you like it so much.
For instance, last year I grew several normal and cherry tomato varieties. I might have the following list:
Tomato: Cherokee Purple-unbeatable flavor
Cherry Tomato: Sungold-Irresistibly sweet, very prolific
A comprehensive list would be awesome, including everything from Asparagus to zucchini. I appreciate anyone willing to type out their responses. I know some of you grow dozens of different veggies. Also, if a list like this already exists in the forums, my apologies, but I couldn't find it.
