Nope, I tried to grow one last year with just a few things and I just couldnt get anything to grow, it all died on me, this year i went even smaller with one of those tomatoe plants that grow up side down and the same thing..stupid thing died...i give up no more gardens for me
No, I don't. I have lots of decorative plants and bushes, but the only edible thing I grow is basil!

My October Space
Why yes, as a matter of fact I do! I think it's pretty big since we live in town and not out in the country. We have about 16 tomato plants, cucumber trellis, about 12 yellow squash plants, 4 zucchini plants, some eggplants, and about 10 pepper plants.
Still haven't made it back to Menards for more pavers to finish out the edging on the squash row..may end up waiting until next Spring for that.
And since I'm proud, I'm posting loads of pics! ...Sorry if I get carried away!
Trellis this morning. It was suppose to be twice the size, hence the reason the top support isn't centered.... but I went out of town for 16 days and the second round of cucs were too big to mess with.
Love how easy they are to pick
And Making Pickles:
And some flowers:
I used to have a big Veg. Garden at my previous house. I don't know the exact size. but I shared it with my neighbor and we grew green beans, tomatoes, peppers, corn, watermelon, cantalope, broccoli. It was so good! Now Ihave to find a farmers market because nothing will grow where I live now.
Nope. I can't grow stuff like that...I'm terrible with stuff like that.
My brother has one, and when he and his girlfriend broke up he moved it to my parents house. Then he moved again, so his garden is over there and we get some of his vegetables out of it.
This is my second year using my greenhouse. We dont get enough warmth or sunshine to grow much outside, plus it is all sandy soil. So we built a 20*12 foot greenhouse. We keep everything in there. We have had more sun than normal this year so it has done really well. I have lots of lettuce, sug snap peas, 5 tomato plants, pickling cucumbers, herbs, 2 pepper plants and beets growing. Next year I plan to do much much more and hope we still have lots of sun. It still needs a little tweaking, like more ventilation windows but it is doing great! I put the boys sandbox in there so they can play all year around. It leaks but it is more of a room than a greenhouse. I will see if I can find a pic on Photobucket. We built it out of salvaged(Free from Craigslist) and cedar posts imbedded in concrete. There was a shell of a greenhouse there when we bought our house 4 yrs ago but it was so covered in English ivy that you couldnt walk inside so it is a huge improvement!

We have a nice space for a garden here, but haven't started yet. We do have citrus trees which I'm really excited about! nothing's ripe yet, but soon enough we'll have oranges, pomellos, lemons and I'm pretty sure the last tree is clementines but I could be wrong... might be neglected grapefruit (they're tiny) we're giving them lots of love and water now, so we'll see what they are in the fall! Oh and we have a huge passionfruit plant! I love passionfruit, but they're also not quite ready yet.
Since we're renting, I'm thinking of planting in containers - now's not the right time to start, but I may start an herb garden before the baby's born. In this climate, winter is actually a decent time to start planting certain things, so I'm looking into my options and hopefully by the time we're celebrating our babies' first birthdays I'll have a lot more to report!
