We just moved and I am creating a new garden in the beach environment: salt in the air, winds and sand soils. I would like to start edible garden so any suggestions on what would grow best in Brunswick county NC, zone 8 (but remember this is island weather so lots of salt in the air)
Thank you for your help!

A quick internet check says these crops are salt-tolerant...

Beets
Bell peppers
Broccoli
Cabbage
Kale
Loquats
Spinach
Tomatoes

I don't have salty conditions, so that is just what I found on a site. I was actually surprised to see tomatoes and peppers there, but not asparagus.
