We've all been enjoying gardening this year, and we now have a pretty good assortment of vegetables. Since this is our first year gardening in Pittsburgh, we tried a little of everything.
The peas were delicious but we didn't have nearly enough of them. Vine beans were wonderful and steady producers. Bush beans, tho, not so good — lots of space for one crop of beans and then nothing.
Corn was great, and the sunflowers were super-tough and resiliant — they were eaten down to nubs by deer while we were in DC, and to my great surprise they grew back and proceeded to make many nice flowers with big seed heads.
The cucumber vines were also victims of the deer, but we did get several nice cucumbers.
