I was thinking some kind of berry, jalapenos, and/or tomatoes.

You shouldn't have any problems with peppers or tomatoes. Berries, though, are often finicky, so check into those. Some berries also don't produce fruit for the first couple years.

Staying in state near the border.

That's awesome you got to stay in the same state. Switching all the car/insurance stuff over from states is expensive and mentally exhausting.

I was relieved to have those things not on the list for sure.

It's definitely not too late. You can still do pretty much everything this far south.

Re: It's April! Let's Chat!

K, I made these (well, ok, my dad mostly made these) when I lived in an apartment: https://growagoodlife.com/constructi...ontainers-swc/
Now we have a yard and garden and a bigger patio, but I still keep similar type gardens on the patio. We have boughten ones now that look a little less crude. I think I saw similar ones at Lowe's recently and they aren't that expensive. I keep all my herbs on my patio for easy access from the kitchen and I keep other stuff around the corner of the house in my garden.

In those containers, I've had great luck with peppers, tomatoes, peas, lettuce, and several other veggies. I'd probably stay away from berries and fruit - it needs to be established. I'd also skip lettuce this late - it gets a little bitter if it's too warm out.
