Asparagus- A perrenial. Needs a deeply prepared soil, to about 2' deep with manures, compost and dolomite. Add an all purpose vegetable fertilizer and plant
the crowns where they won't be disturbed, away from the annual vegie area.
Carrots- Deep, well prepared soil. No lumps in the soil and no manures. A band of all pupose fert about 6" below the surface gives them a boost.
Cucumbers- A cucurbit. They like lots of feeding. plant
with other cucurbits in soil enriched with lots of organic matter..ie, aged manures and compost.
Lettuce- Not too hot. Some shade in the afternoon is good in Summer. Mulched soil and plenty of water with good drainage and regular liquid feeding.
Peas- Sweet soil. Add dolomite prior to planting. They don't like extremely hot weather.peppers
-A hot spot. The hotter the better. potatoes

Pumpkins-As for cucumber.
Tomatoes-With the peppers
. They like similar conditions.
Watermelons-As for cucumber.
Strawberries- Sorry. Can't seem to get the hang of these.
It's not too late. Go for it, give it a try and see how you go. Start preparing the soil now. Turn it over, add a general all purpose fertilizer and see if you can get some compost. Make a compost heap for use later. By the time you get your seeds
together it can be ready. If you can get a soil test done prior to all of this, it may save you lots of trial and error.
