I am looking for mostly a veggie type garden. I have always wanted one and I am sick of not having one. I literally have no space on my back yard. The place I am thinking of putting a garden is 11'X5' so really not that big at all. I would plant the rows lengh wise. I live in Tampa Fl so it stays hot most of the year.
Here are some ideas that I have so far
tomoatoes (I love these I do have a pool area that I got a patio tomato plant for)
squash (but I think this needs space??)
I have a ton of fence and wall space so I was thinking of some vine veggies but not sure what. I have heard that scarlet runner beans are pretty and taste good so I might try those but have read that they do not fruit in temps that are over 90and in FL is gets to be that hot or hotter during the summer.
I am going to try my hand at some limas as well.
Does anyone know what sort of beans or peas would do well? Or anyother pretty veggie vine plants?
I also tend to have a black thumb.
My soil is crap so I am trying to add a bit of potting soil and compost to the soil that I do have in hopes that it will do well.
Any veggie growers that know what might do well in a small hot crappy soiled garden. With a lady who is nuts and really wants to eat fresh veggies but for some reason kills even weeds.
Also what are some cheaper ways to make a trellis? I was thinking of something but I have no idea what it is called but it has a open tirangle type thing in the middle and is made of thin small wood that crosses each other.
