Favourite vegetable to grow?

Just wondering, now that the growing season has started in earnest, what is your favourite vegetable to grow.

For me it is the humble carrot, I dont think you can compare the taste of supermarket carrots with the ones straight from the garden. I know this is true for most veg, but I find it more noticeable with carrots.

Add that to their long growing season and they are a winner for me.

    Like Dove, I'd have to vote for a whole 'family' of vegetables - but I say "Let's hear it for ONIONS!" : shallots (round and long 'uns), spring onions, sets, Cibou, Chives, Welsh onions, everlasting and annual too! Such a versatile group and tasty too boot!

    Anything easy, so Peas, Carrots and Onions.

    I guess I was being mean making people choose just oneimage. I am lucky to have a nearby allotment so can 'attempt' to grow pretty much what I want to. However if I was limited for space I would have to be more selective and this started me thinking what I would grow.

    Its interesting to see what different tastes we all have.
