If you're getting a headstart on this year's garden, this guide from Bottom Line can help you choose which vegetables to grow. It points out the easy-to-grow options that may save you the most money.
Skip the artichokes and cauliflower, the article suggests, because they're more difficult to grow. Onions and potatoes also won't save you a lot of money versus buying at the store. On the other hand, good values for your gardening efforts include: salad greens and heirloom cherry tomatoes (even better money savers than larger tomatoes, thanks to the longer growing season and bountiful crop).
Of course, money isn't the only consideration for your garden. If you enjoy a good beefsteak potato or eat a lot of potatoes, there's no reason you can't grow them as well. But for a starter, budget garden, this is a good list to consult.
