Lettuce, tomatoes, sugar snap peas and rhubarb are easy vegetables to grow, according to Sunset.com. Other easy-to-grow vegetables include summer squash, radishes, chives, basil and thyme.
Lettuce grows easily, particularly in cool temperatures, and offers many varieties. Loose-leaf lettuces yield bountiful crops because they regrow immediately after harvesting. Summer squash also requires little maintenance and offers huge yields. Most varieties are ready to harvest approximately seven weeks after planting, and flourish in sunny environments. Summer squash is also a popular choice for container gardens.
Short-season radish cultivars are ready to harvest about 30 days after planting, and some varieties produce radishes after only 21 days. These cultivars prefer cool temperatures. Other varieties, which have longer growing seasons, flourish in warmer environments.
