I had cherry tomatoes that came back year after year and grew HUGE. My greatest success. Gotta love something you can't kill!

Raw is ok but better is just blanched with a little butter and lemon juice. Also love with just a bit of garlic.

Mmmm, love beets too, but I've never grown them. Maybe I'll try them this winter in the greenhouse...

sounds like a winner to me: I might give them a shot about March of next year and then by the time they have done their thing I can pull them up and plant winter squash: I usually get my squash or sweet potatoes in about now or a little earlier and the beet season here is just ending. It went a little longer this year as spring was very late getting here. We actually went from cold, below normal spring weather right into almost record heat. Our nice spring just went in and out way too fast.

You could grow them, scarlet runners or pole beans, on a tepee, taking up only 12-15 inches of soil...?

I grow green beans in a container. They do well.

I've grown zucchini, squash, tomatoes big and small, cucumbers, beans, eggplant, lettuce, spinach, all herbs in containers

and will try broccoli and cauliflower this fall if I can find containers large enough for one plant...they do well as fall plants in my area as well as spring.
