I have a garden all year long. Since the price of veggies continues to rise, it not only saves me money but makes my day when I can go outside, cut lettuce and eat a salad right afterwards!
My schedule is so hectic and I found that I would start a garden and maintain it for a while but then I would have to travel and the weeds/bugs would take over and all was lost.
Now in the fall, I start all my plants in pots, put them on the back porch and used some clear plastic to encase the area to make a make-shift greenhouse. Add a heat light and poof-I can grow year round!
It's not even summer and my tomatoes are already about the size of a pea and I harvest spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, collards, broccoli and green peas daily!!

Sadly, no. I love gardening, but I had to give it up because of my cancer, I have too many issues with pain and fatigue because of it. I miss it, but I have to put my health first.

Yes! I love gardening, and vegetable gardening is my favorite, enjoying the literal fruits of my labor! And it tastes so much better fresh picked from the garden

We've planted some basil and parsley so far, but it's too early in the season to plant much else yet. We'll probably put in some tomatoes and beans next month.

Smart idea with the bare spot! I didn't do it with a pool, but just laid out plastic over the winter and it was garden-ready in April. I guess I won't be doing one this year. Too old and tired -( emoticon belongs here!) Fortunately, I live close to our city Farmer's Market. Good luck and have fun!
Why do the emoticons end up at the bottom instead of where I want them???? grrr

Yes we do a large every year , when you are married to a farmer you have to have a garden, LOL; I love a garden it still is so amazing to me how fast things grow ; and I find it does not pay to buy real expensive plants the cheap plants work just as well for instance tomato plants,but it is a little early yet;

We have a large garden and just added another one. My city decided that the little blue blow up pools are a hazard and require a fence around them (I'm not spending money on a fence). So since I have a nice circle of bare dirt in the yard from the pool, my girls and I turned it into their garden. We planted a few cold crops on Monday...peas, spinach, lettuce, onions, kohlrabi, radishes, and carrots. When the frost danger is gone we'll add zucchini, cucumbers, a cherry tomato, beans, broccoli, and a bunch of flower seeds. In the big garden, I'll mostly have tomatoes, different types of peppers, potatoes, corn and herbs. Now I'm getting hungry!

Yes, we have a large organic vegetable garden. I fertilize it over the winter with fresh horse manure. I'm anxious to get started, it's mild and dry enough to start peas, cilantro and other hardy stuff, just waiting for BF it rototill.
