If you’ve decided to give organic gardening a go this year, start off by planting some sure-fire, low maintenance picks… Here’s a list of just some of the many easy crops you can pick and some hints for a successful start:

Blackberries: They can grow almost anywhere you have the space and they are very low maintenance. When picking, beware of the thorns, wear thick gloves or try a thornless variety.
