For the time being, we have mud season here in Maine
I can relate to all of the plants you have mentioned though. Container gardening is great if you dont have space. I've grown vegetables in containers, sort of like a salad bowl of lettuce, tomatoes, herbs, etc.
I have a very small garden for veggies so I have to plan my garden carefully. I have a lot of flowers (perennials) that have been in my bed for years. It's time to add some nutrients to my soil soon. I like to use composted-dehydrated cow manure and peat moss, as well as all the liquid gold from my compost pile
Happy gardening! Oh btw, it's suppose to be warm tomorrow (50 degrees) and then back to snow, rain, and sleet for Monday
