Hi Nikki, welcome to the team. I am doing my veggie gardening in raised beds, the soil here is heavy clay and limestone, and raised beds are needed to get much of anything. I use vertical gardening as much as possible, lots of trellises and cages. I find I can get at least twice as much from garden that way.

Welcome to the team. I live on a small piece of property and my gardening is also in containers. I have pepper, tomatoes, onions and my strawberries are over for the year. I am checking into what veggies will grow in the extreme heat of the late summer and use those containers again.
Keep on track

My name is Nikki and I live in Upstate New York. Although we have many gorgeous farms up here I live in the middle of the city and grow in 2 wooden raised beds and containers. This season I have peppers, tomatoes, onions, garlic, radishes, peas, cucumbers and strawberries.
I have been working on being some "social" here on SP and am joining teams. So hello!
