Lettuce, spinach, other greens, broccoli, potatoes, tomatoes, peas, onions, leeks, and a variety of herbs have grown well for me. I'm sure the type of soil you have in your area will play a role, though.

I hope you are all well! Thank you for your replies. I truly appreciate it!<br>
I wanted to get an idea of how and what would be possible.<br>
1) What tends to be your growing season?<br>
2) Do any of you have a greenhouse? If so, by how long does that extend your growing season?<br>
3) Do you all grow your veggies ORGANICALLY?<br>
4) If so, how do manage to keep the bugs, critters out & away from it all?<br>
5) How is your soil?

I tend to plant scallions and baby onions around the edges of any pots or beds. That cuts down on buggy pests as its a natural deterrant. I'm not too rural so its not that bad of a problem for me.
