Get your garden tools ready for the easiest cash crops to grow!
If you paid attention in history class, you might recognize the term cash crop. I wasn’t really aware that it was something still used, but when I think about it, it makes sense because there are certain crops that yield cash. It’s not rocket science. I think people involved in farming are really admirable considering I hate going outside. I also don’t like bugs, so nature and I don’t really get along well. I like benefiting from those who like it, though. As someone who pretty much exclusively eats bread, I really need the wheat farmers producing the crop so I can eat toast all day in bed.
There are so many different types of crops. If you have a vast amount of land, you can enter into this lucrative business. The crops you choose to grow depend greatly on where you live and the climate, so it’s important to note that if you’re looking to be a farmer or even just have a single plant in your backyard. You could even grow some of the easiest edible plants to grow indoors if you really want to get fancy with it.
In order to create this list, we checked out sources like Pinterest, Answer the Public, and Permies. For ranking purposes, we looked at how many days it takes for the crops to reach maturity. The crops that take the least amount of time to reach maturity are at the top of the list because they’re theoretically easier to grow. However, it must again be noted that the easiest crops to grow are the ones that suit your location and the climate. It’s also important to know what type of soil is natural in your region. Some crops just don’t do well in certain areas. That being said, this list is based on some averages.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the easiest cash crops to grow.
