    UPDATE:

    So we went to a local nursery so here is what i have so far

    Planted seeds:
    yellow summer squash (crook neck)
    Zucchini (organic or black beauty)
    Acorn Squash
    Butternut Squash
    Watermelon (crimson something)
    Cantaloupe (sierra gold)
    Pumpkins (sugar sweet)
    Cucumbers (straight 8 i think)
    radish
    bush beans (blue like 248 or something haha)
    Egg plant black beauty
    Plants:
    x6 Early start tomatoes
    x6 Golden bell peppers
    X6 Green bell the type starts with a S, straton or something
    x6 broccoli

    if you want to count them we have green onions growing randomly in the weeds

    I plant to hopefully add some more peppers and other types of tomatoes. like red bells, and roma, beefsteak and plum tomatoes. Also like to do some spinach and leaf lettuce I might do hot peppers this year i just have to find a different area to plant them.

    LOL. Soon you can sell fresh vegetables to local markets. Thats a good way to make some money in this economy. I should start doing that now.

    Hehe, another update , anyone else have updates

    yesturday, planted ruby red leaf lettuce, and black seeded simpson lettuce. Also fordhook giant swiss chard and red swiss chard.

    what has sprouted from last time, pumpkins, radish, winter squash, one zucchini, couple cucumbers

    injuries- well i've gotten some blisters, working out there daily haha, though plants have also faced some. 2 of my broccolli plants were killed down to one leaf, and one of my green bell peppers was killed down to 2 leaves at the ground. fenced up a little more

    pests- noticed tons of ants around the garden so i put out some cornmeal, my grandma said it worked when she put it around the house so hopefully it worked around the garden, i might also put out a thing of beer for slugs, maybe it was slugs and not animals that got my plants?? I just found one that i guess decided to try to eat my plants, but it didn't know that today was going to be hot and sunny so it dried up a few inches away from the plant.

    I've got a thornless blackberry on my balcony, as well as seven kinds of mint and a little scrubby rosemary. I'm trying to figure out a way I can do more veggies out there, but my CPs already have most of the space filled... My patio is like half the size of your plot, and we're three stories up.

    The vegetable gardening season is over here for the spring/summer. We can plant more things about September. The only thing that can survive our summer of ungodly heat, humidity, and rain is okra, cherry tomatoes, and sweet potatoes. I'm thinking of trying bush watermelon and cucumbers this fall. I hate the long vines of the regular varieties as they seem to take over everything. For those of you with normal growing seasons - good luck with the produce.
