What varieties of vegetables should I plant in my tiny front yard garden in DC? I have a bunch of seed catalogues, but the 10+ pages of tomato varieties are overwhelming! What are your favorite varieties of tomato, cucumber, beans, etc. to grow? [more inside]

Every year on my porch in Boston, Ma. I grow a few different vegetables in large planters. This year one is pumpkins
After several years of growing crops in the same soil, how can I rejuvenate the soil to make it better for the next crop?

Just shoveled out a new garden 2 weeks ago. Put some tomatoes and peppers seedlings in, and already have some baby pepper and tomato plant is flowering well. Looking for strange or exotic veggies or herbs I can put into the remaining space. This east facing plot probably gets 4-6 hours of direct sun (more once we get further into summer). I live coastal in San Diego, so it would be zone 10. It also never get's hotter than 90F, and never below 32F. Very dry, so low water plants are a plus, but I dont mind watering a small area often.
I have no preference starting from seed or seedling, so either one works.

So my tomato plants look a bit sick (yellow -> brown leaves on the bottom). If it has fusarium wilt, must I destroy it? [more inside]
