Hello and Welcome
I Heirloom veggies in containers and start seeds in my little hobby greenhouse where I also propagate most of het plants mentioned aboue. I sell plants there in the spring and early summer as Mimi's Greenhouse
Favorite Container Garden Tip: You can grow a neat little salad garden on your deck or patio. I plant mine early and cover it with a frost blanket. You will need large flower pots, mine are 15 inch ones that are a little less than 2 feet tall. In the summer they hold Clematis vines that are dormant right now. I loosened up the top 2 inches of soil, spread my gourmet lettuce seed mix, barely cover the seeds and wait for the rain.I take the frost blanket off when I see teh little seedlings and put it back on if a sever frost is predicted. You could be harvesting your first salad by the last of march or first of pril in zone 6.
