I currently own two self-watering containers that I grow tomatoes in but I'm planning on buying two more and hope to grow my herbs and maybe some onions in them.

DH wants to move my raspberry bushes to my old herb garden so if that happens, I'll have to find another place for my flower containers. If that doesn't happen, I want to buy a piece of plywood that's the same size as my herb garden and put it on top and then put the containers on top of it for a cleaner look. Right now, I just have a black tarp on the garden and the containers on top.

Flower-wise, I usually plant geraniums and marigolds.

I've had container gardens for the past 6 years. Each year the size shrinks a little as it has become harder for me. Last year my dad filled all the containers half full of potting soil and put the containers two a time on top of a plastic folding table where I could plant the baby plants and then he put those two down and put two more up....until I was all done. He has hooked up a hose right nearby so the whole thing was more manageable. Mostly I grow and dehydrate herbs. A few flowers and two kinds of tomatoes.

No, I am not a gardener. I have a very black thumb so no gardens for me.

I love to garden too. We have a small garden this year. I hope it does really good. If we can just get some good old home grown tomatoes, I'll be happy.

I used to garden each year. I stopped about 8 years ago and am planning to start again this year - one 4x4 raised bed for vegetables. My kids have chosen tomatoes, green peppers, and broccoli.

I have had good-sized vegetable gardens in the past but now it's just containers. emoticon I usually put 5 window boxes around the railings of our deck, and 2 large pots out front where it's sunnier, filled with tomatoes, basil and some flowers. emoticon

Are you a gardener? If yes, what are your plans for your garden this year?
