My potatoes died. Long story short, I neglected them. Anyway, I would like to put something in their place. What would be a good thing (fruit or veggie) to put in? I realize it is late in the year, but would like to try to get something in. I am in East TN - dry and hot right now. Thanks.

Lettuce and radishes grow fast and I think they both will be fine in the hot weather.

I feel like such an idiot. I was telling a guy at work about my potatoes. He said that meant they were ready to be dug up! Hah! and they were. I dug them up and they are great.

I think I will go for the radishes. I did put the potatoes out early, but I still didn't expect them so soon. Thanks for the advice.
