  • I grew 3 types of tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, red and green peppers, lettuce, onions, eggplant, cucumbers, brussels sprouts and green beans in my garden last summer. I had the best results with the sugary tomatoes (just like grape tomatoes), plum tomatoes, zucchini, squash and cucumbers. The others did well too, but did not yield as much. I had 3 sugary tomato plants that literally yielded HUNDREDS of delicious sweet tomatoes. My daughter at them right off the plant all summer long. I also do herbs in pots on my deck.

  • I grow zucchini, tomatoes and some years peppers. They are all easy and I have tried that upside-down growing thing for the past few years and I LOVE it.

  • tomatoes worked out for me very well last year (my first year to try container gardening on my apartment patio) but I tried squash and it didn't have enough room to grow. The green onions have come back and come back and come back!! I love it! I also got some chives, and that is growing well also. Very little maintenance!!

  • Green onions. Go to the store and buy a bundle, use them but save the roots. Stick them in a pot of dirt. Super easy to grow and they seem to not be bothered by cool weather.
