"...I always considered you the Dutch elm disease of our family tree..." Looking to start a vegetable garden next spring. But giving me a plant is like being convicted of a capital crime in Texas. Outdoors, dry climate, good soil, lots of sun. Start small, maybe 10' square. In the unlikely event I can keep that going I have room to expand. What are the most kill-proof plants to start with? Ideally I'd have at least corn, potatoes and tomatoes (bad luck so far with tomatoes). All of which will grow here if I do my part. Maybe some fruit trees.
