I tend to stick with the same stuff, but each year I do try something new. I do a lot of canning, so like growing beans as they are easy to can and we like them. I've canned carrots and beets before too, but won't can beets again. They lose too much color in the canning process. I still have canned tomato sauce from last year so thought I was cutting back on only 8 tomato plants this year, but I've had about 5 or 6 pop up in random areas in my garden, probably from my compost.

This year I planted an artichoke plant which I've never done before. And also planted some eggplant, but they are still so small that I'm not sure I'll even get any this year.

Otherwise, my usual stand-bys are:
beans, sugar snap peas, lettuce, spinach, carrots, beets, zucchini, cucs, onions, green bell peppers, jalapenos, and then usually a "red" one , like thai or chili peppers. these are for salsa making.
