And put the tomatoes on the northern edge as well.
Zucchini (or yellow squash) might be worth a try as well. It grows easily and produces well. Beans are also very good producers and easy to do.
A great online resource for seeds is the seed saver exchange. They do heirloom variety plants just in case you want to save the seeds and plant them again the following year. They also have a large variety of plants that you just don't see anymore.
And the corn will get pretty tall. Fresh corn is great but I would pass on that one if space is an issue.
Thanks for the info also!
Its a lot to process but all of it sounds exciting and inline with my best hopes!
Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once its realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.
