I planted a hibrid pumpkin plant. Something i'm experimenting with and read up on. If you knwo what you're doing it can yeild a 1,000 lb pumpkin. We'll see how it goes.
Our backyard is wooded so we only have a 15' x 9' area that gets sun. HOA rules don't let us plant anything on the sides or front.
7 Large 30" terracotta pots on the back deck wtih: sweet basil, rosemary, sage, spearmint, Meyer Lemon, lemon and regular oregano, chives, garlic (amazed at how well garlic grows in potting soil/top soil mix in a container)
In the garden:
Italian parsley, cilantro (lots)
Jalapeno, Habanero peppers ( habanero a day keeps the Dr away!)
Lots of Tomatoes (95% eaten raw sliced with salt and pepper, or on BLTs, rest in salsa)
Pumpkins (my 5 year old's choice)
