We grow the usual tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, pumpkins, peppers (both bell and hot), eggplants, cantaloupes, and watermelons. The latter did the best the last two years.I've also tried growing Central Asian melons, but they really hate our humidity. Even during the drought. Won't stop me from trying again though. If you ever tasted an Uzbek or Turkmen melon you'll know why. Reportedly they do grow well in places like Arizona.What are the organic pesticides and fungicides you are using? I'm all for organic, but if need be I'll go all-Sevin to save the hard work.
Plan to break out last year's topsy-turvy's for the balcony that worked so well. For the first time we had a lot of decent tomatoes! Will probably to the same as last year, plant a combination of higher yield and heirloom plants.

Will probably to the same as last year, plant a combination of higher yield and heirloom plants."Heirloom" (perhaps this term goes into the overused foodie words category) does not necessarily equal low yield. There are certainly some plants that aren't as productive as others, but I know of several from first hand experience that offer huge yields.
Oh, and the "tomato" cages that they sell at Home Depot are a joke. They do well supporting eggplant or larger pepper plants but you'll need a very large (6, 7+ feet tall) or a sturdy trellis system for GA grown tomatoes.
