Could you recommend vegetables or melons for the Bethesda area?

Asked April 10, 2013, 6:59 PM EDT

I live in Bethesda, near the corner of River Rd. and Seven Locks Rd. I am starting a 10x16 size Vegetable garden and was wondering if you would reccommend some vegetables and maybe melons that do well in this area. Thank you, Kay.

Please refer to the following publication: http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG70_Recommended_Veg...
This publication lists recommended cultivars for the most popular vegetables grown by Maryland gardeners. As a new gardener, it may be best that you select varieties that have proven to be successful. As you gain experience, you may choose to try some of the many other varieties available on the internet or in the many seed catalogs. Be advised that melons require lots of room to spread. One melon vine could cover an area 5'X5' or more.
