I used to raise pumpkins, and I was wondering if you guys have a recommendation for an easy vegetable to raise? Unlike my previous place, I don't have the fence for squash or whatnot.

I have to start off with the humble radish.  Nothing is easier to grow.  While I'm not that fond of their sharp taste in their raw, unadulterated state, they are really lovely if pickled or sauteed with bacon. 

Radish greens have a peppery bite in salads, and if you want to make this low-calorie food a little naughty, find recipes for radish chips.  Black radishes are really beautiful on a plate.  I'm seeing all these variations more at restaurants these days.

Have you grown radishes before? Do you have any guides for growing them? I'm a terrible gardener and don't want a finnicky plant which requires a lot of attention, water, and fertiliser.

Yes, and biggest tip:  Plant them in full sun.  This should help, from growing steps through a few recipes:

I agree with radishes.

Other crops that need minimal attention:  carrots, leaf lettuce, and herbs like mint or chives.

You may have to worry about animals like squirrels.

Leaf based crops are always a good choice for new gardeners.   

Beans are also good.

Radishes and carrots were also my first thought.

Carrot fly is out of control in the UK.  You need to protect your carrots by either growing them in raised beds or have garden fleece around them.  Carrot fly can fly up to 1.2 meters.
