East facing garden?
My grandma had the best garden ever at her home (in Aurora). She had everything at one point in time. Corn, zucchini, carrots, strawberries, rhubarb, spinach, tomatoes, potatoes, radishes, onions, beets, cabbage (or lettuce or both I dont remember), watermelons, pumpkins. Basically anything you want you can grow! Well... I dont know if she had honeydew or cantaloupe ever, or kiwi... dont try to get too exotic I guess.
She was always battling with birds and squirrels on her strawberries though. Kind of a PITA, but so yummy to have some homemade strawberry ice cream in the summer!
