I started with the 10 easiest to grow from the book:
beans, lettuce, peas, radishes, summer squash, and tomatoes, (
The last three were 'maybes', since I wasn't sure about cooking them: chard, herbs, and potatoes.
I can now say no
In my original post I added some shade plants:
strawberries, kale and spinach. I've started strawberries in a hanging basket, but
My boyfriend had added to the list:
peppers, corn, and carrots. Peppers and corn we'll try at the garden. I've bought some carrots and I'm toying with growing them here in a container, yes because I saw it on Pinterest and it made carrots look cool.
My friend had added:
acorn squash, hubbard squash, and yams.
Since making this list I've also had a winter squash recommended. There's also the vegetable certain to be the favorite - pumpkins. My friend recommended one with sugar or pie in the name, and I love the miniatures for decorating.
I can take this list with me shopping, but I think it still needs some varities added. I'll go through notes and try to get those in so I can look for better container sizes and any specifically recommended. If anyone has a variety they like please leave a comment.
