Default Are You Growing Any for the 1st Time Ever?

Each year for the past few now, I've tried growing a vegetable I've never grown before, and found it extremely satisfying. A couple years ago it was Swiss Chard, last year it was Onions, and this year it is Sweetpotatoes.

I love sweetpotatoes, and it will be quite a challenge to get a crop in up here. I'm cutting back on tomatoes a bit so I'll have room for an entire row, about 25 - 30 feet. They will be the last thing I plant, but the first to have the soil prepared.

I find that besides my new tomato varieties, whatever is a first-timer gets most of my attention and excitement.

Does anyone else do this? If so, what vegetable are you growing for the first time? Why?
