Veggie gardening in Vancouver, BC?
Long story short, I'd like to grow as many of my own vegetables as possible, as produce in Vancouver is (like everything else) anything but cheap. I also have a couple of major restrictions:
-I have perhaps a 1x4 meter area to work in.
-This area gets quite a bit of shade from an overhead maple tree, though I guess that won't be as much of a problem come winter.
-My soil is fairly sandy, though it's getting better with the help of compost and manure.
With this in mind, does anyone have any suggestions on what kind of vegetables would be good for me to grow, and when? Any suggestions would be most helpful, as the entire yield from my garden in three months has been about 10 peas, 6 burgundy beans, and half a dozen tomatoes that have been stolen by squirrels...
