The experiment netted some fine results. Container gardening on the deck is viable. Not all of the varieties were home runs but we now know which ones we like the best.
There are still some producing tomatoes in the yard garden, so we'll get a few more tomatoes until a cold snap, maybe.
The shadows are long now and the main crop doesn't get any light at all really. The deck still gets light in the a.m. and so we'll try some more container gardening going forward.
