 Tomatoes: Tomatoes are the most common ingredient in a lot of recipes so we always need them in large amounts. At the grocery stores, they usually range anywhere between $3 to $5 per pound so if you grow them in your garden it will be a big cost cutting factor. Tomato plants are very easy to grow, as they need a small amount of space and can produce quality fruit even in harsh conditions. Small numbers of plants are able to produce large quantity of tomatoes as they grow in bulk on every plant. To get ripe and healthy tomatoes in your garden, it is good to plant them in a sunny spot. When you have picked them, they are easy to store because they simply need to be at room temperature to stay fresh.
