I would love to plant a spring garden. The problem is, because of my arthritis I can't get down to the ground anymore. My knees just won't take it. So now I'm thinking about having a raised garden, but I'm hesitant to put the money into one of those wooden table-like things (don't know what they're called). I don't know, maybe I'll start really small and then see if I want to go to something bigger next spring (or fall). But I would definitely plant at least cucumbers, tomatoes, and zucchini if I did have a garden!
I hope you do try a raised garden! I wish I was there to help you set one up, it makes me sad to hear of anyone wanting to garden & being unable. If you know anyone who's handy, I bet you could build one for cheaper than the kits.
