If starting the seeds indoors, please make sure the light is very close to the surface so the young plants will not have to stretch to reach the light. I had a container garden for 2 years. My containers were in full sun most of the day and did just fine. Containers may need to be watered more often.
We have a forum for veggies here:
When you have some free time, I would suggest you read through the posts on that forum as lots of people have asked questions and received tons of good answers and suggestions.
