New Gardener here doing my first year of crops. This year I just kind of dove right in and bought a random basket full of seeds that I thought would be fun to grow. Unfortunately I am finding some of them are growing better than others, which I am learning is because some plants are more suitable for warm weather than others.
The average lows here range from 65(Jan) - 75(Aug) and the highs from 80(Jan) - 89(Aug). My yard gets lots of sunshine, but there are a few spots where I can plant and get shade for parts of the day.
So what vegetables and/or fruits will grow best??? I am willing to grow anything edible, here is a list of the plants I have in the ground now.
Cucumber (One month old, fast start, appear to be growing well)
Carrots (One month old, slow start, still small and not growing to fast)
Lettuce (One month old, Fast start, but doesnt appear to be growing fast)
Spinach (One month old, fast start, appears to be doing very well)
Basil (One month old, slow start, but looks healthy)
Tomato (2-3 weeks old, slow start, but 3/4th are doing well, others have leaves dying)
Cilantro (One month old, looks healthy)
Lemon/Lime (Age not known, purchased full grown at Home Depot)
Arugula (One month old, started well, but now appears to be dying)
Beets (Seeds sprouted, lots of them, 1 week old)
Papaya (seeds still not sprouted after 1 week, still waiting)
Rosemary (Seeds not sprouted after one week, still waiting)
Any advice you can give would be great!!
