Believe it or not you can grow any vegetable you want in San Francisco, providing your garden gets from 6-8 hours of direct sunshine and you choose short-season tomatoes, peppers, corn and squashes. Just about anything else can be the standard varieties. Lettuces, radishes, beets, broccoli, cabbage, beans, peas and chard will grow well; rhubarb and potatoes are also good choices. Just find the seeds or transplants with the shortest days to maturity and you should have a successful garden. Enjoy!
