We grow tomatoes every year. They are easy to grow in this part of the country. I have tried growing some greens but the critters get to them. This year I'm thinking of planting them in pots on the deck so maybe I'll get to eat some of them.

We enjoy having a veggie garden and it does provide us with a lot of produce in the summers, especially. Last summer, I didn't buy any veggies from the store and we gave away a bunch of tomatoes to family and neighbors (they are so fun to grow that we always get too many plants...always heirloom varieties because we find those the most enjoyable to grow and eat). I'm putting in kale, lettuce, snow peas and chard this week (fortunately, I live in an area where I can still get these in the ground) and have already bought several packets of seeds to plant when things warm up--watermelon, cantaloupe, corn, squash, winter squash, cucumbers, radishes, carrots, green beans, peas, etc. I'm pretty happy that we already have one tomato growing (we like to grow our tomatoes in 1/2 barrels) that's about 18 inches tall and it has a couple of flowers in it. Next month, I'll pick up a few more tomato plants and some little pepper plants to transplant. I'd love to try growing some of those fingerling potatoes, but I need to wait until we can find the time (and place for) a potato box.

We have several fruit trees--most are still pretty young, and don't produce a lot yet, but we have a mature apple tree that leaves us swimming in apples in the Fall. We're planning to plant several more fruit trees and we just got two new ones this week--a nectarine and a nectaplum. We have 5 blueberry bushes (had two and just added three this week). I'd love to add a grape vine and some strawberries as well.

I used to have a garden when I had a house.
We'd grow tomatoes, peppers, mirliton, mint, bay leaf and eggplant there a lot.

Gardening in all of it's forms has been a trend all over for quite a while.
There are lots of varieties of urban gardening as well.
Google it!
aquaponics, hydroponics,
urban gardening, square foot gardening, kitchen garden gadgets,
community - school - prison garden programs

we grow a very modest amount of tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers.

Oh! how I wish!
We live in an apartment, so I don't have room for much garden... plus the patio exposure isn't even well suited to container plants. I had a bunch of potted herbs out there which withered up and died from lack of sun. I have physical challenges which would make it very difficult, even if the environment didn't dispute my wishes with me, though I'd try if I could.
Still, I order loads of gardening catalogs and sit with them and mope and pine and yearn over my plight. With the right resources, I'd love to have a little personal farm - nothing commercial, just something to grow my own veggies and herbs and maybe raise some chickens for eggs. Simple, homey... I long for it!
Those of you who have those opportunities, make the most of them. You never know how the future may unfold. There are others (such as myself) who are most envious of your possibilities!

...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...

Just a few tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. This year I'm going to try spreading lettuce seeds around my flowers, I've heard it helps keep the weeds down while growing healthy food for our family. :)

Yes, I always do at least the basics every year, tomatoes, peas, that kind of thing. My husband and I have 3 acres in the mountains of Colorado, the growing season here can be temperamental. I'm hoping to build a 500 sq/ft garden with raised beds and deer fencing around it next year. The deer always get to the young plants. We also have wild asparagus growing in the pond next to our house, I'm looking forward to picking some soon. Yay spring!
