Container garden vegetable varieties

Container garden vegetable varieties

This is my second season gardening... I still consider myself a beginner. My husband and I live in apartment, so we're strictly container gardening folks. Last year we had some great successes (cherry tomatoes, basil, chives), some mild success (catnip, mint, cilantro) and some outright failure (strawberries, lettuce). Some of these are even starting to return... The chives are already sprouting again. ^ ^ We'd like to branch out and try some other things this year. We'd like to try zucchini, patty pan squash, peas, and bell peppers. We're in zone 5a, southeastern Wisconsin. Can you folks recommend some varieties of those that grow well in containers? Any help would be greatly appreciated. : )
