Vegetable crops from the garden were always popular.

"The dominant crop during the first 60 years of homesteading was 'king wheat'. New strains of wheat made Saskatchewan the 'bread basket of the world'. During these years of a near monoculture system based on wheat, there were always some homesteaders growing crops such as corn, flax, and rye."
