Peas, lettuce and snaps (green beans) grow best for me. Last year we tried carrots for the first time and they did all right. I love butterbeans but haven't had as much good luck with them the last couple of years. Bell peppers haven't done well for me lately either.
For your next crop of peppers, try banana water. Did wonders for my peppers. You can use a whole banana or just the peel. Smash it up a bit and soak it in about a cup of water (per 1 whole banana or 2 whole peels) over night. Pour the water at the base of your pepper plant then lay the leftover banana over the roots. Do this as you feel you need to (I gave it to mine about 3 times). Does wonders!
