    These are all vegetables requiring a great deal of sun. You may have to settle for other vegetables with less heat and light requirements, such as celery, etc. Black plastic pinned to your garden soil will help trap hear, but won't compensate for sun. Could you reflect light off mirrors or foil, placed around your garden?

  • Vegetables, especially tomatoes, require at least 6 hours of sun per day. If your yard does not have that, that is the reason they did not grow well. You did nothing wrong. Before buying any plants, read the tag to see what they require go flourish and be healthy. If you do not have those requirements, choose another plant. You can buy a grow light and try that way?
