Do you or will you have a garden?
« on: April 29, 2011, 08:25:41 am »
I used to have a small garden, but don't have a green thumb.  Tomatoes and green peppers grew well.  Now I don't have room for one.  I have had flowers in pots or on my deck in the summer and they all die when we are gone for two weeks in July.  I have an automatic sprinkler system and have even put the pots on the lawn where they would get water, but they still die.  I would love to have a few tomato plants on my deck.

So far my dogs have stepped on most everything that came up and the radishes never came up either time I planted them.  Never had that problem with radishes before.

I would love to have a garden for my daughter to have fun planting the seeds and watching them grow into food, but we don't have room for a garden. Our dogs take up all of our yard. LOL

I'm going to grow tomatoes and lettuce at least using pots on my patio as I have no room for a traditional garden.

We have a decent sized, fenced in garden so the dogs can't get in there and trample, urinate, dig, etc.  We typically grow tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, wax beans, sweet peas, peppers, eggplant, zucchini, yellow squash, radishes, and carrots.  As this weather has started to slowly get nicer, it has us really itching to start it.  We really need to till it here soon, as there are a bunch of leaves and organic material which was thrown in it all winter sitting on top.

I rent but the land lord has let me plant flowers in the flower bed in front of the house.  And I have a planter with fresh herbs sitting on the porch.  Not much of a garden but I try.  When we buy a house I will have a big garden.

We are still debating whether to put in a garden or not. It is alot of work and we are so busy. I love fresh veggies from the garden though so I get to the Farmers Market at least once a week.

My mom used to plant food items but now she only really plants flowers. I used to help her but there is no green thumb here, not even a brown one I think mine is black. LOL

When I have my own house (hopefully within the next year to 18 months) I want to plant some fruit trees and possibly some squash, carrots, lettuce etc. It would give my son and me something to do outside and it would cut down on the grocery bill. :)

My grandma is the best gardener I know and I've always wanted to have one, but it just seems to take so much time!

We discussed putting a garden in on the side of our house this year and are going to explore how much sunshine this area gets.  We would love to have some fresh herbs, tomatoes, peppers and lettuce.  We have had a little bit of luck growing flowers and I have given my wife the responsibility of watering the hard to kill varieties like geraniums and marigolds.

We have several gardens going on our acre. The soil is not consistent so we are trying different vegetables in different parts of the acre. So far we have quite a few tomatoes and a couple of watermelons plus some lettuce. :)
