Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

I must learn to love the fool in me- the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries...

Thanks - I tried the upside down tomato last year without much luck - I think 3 tomatoes in total. The in the ground bushes did great so I'm sticking to that this year.

Well it was a thought anyway. Years ago, I did my own parsley, chives etc in pots on the window sill. Came as a kit of sorts, but one would not need a kit, just snip with kitchen shears as needed, rinse and use right then and there. Enjoyed that years ago.

Dot in my old apartment I had a patio and tried one of the upsidedown tomato plants two years in a row but it was so dry and hot I never got a single tomato. Lots of blooms but no fruit. Now I don't even have a patio (but my apartment is much cuter than the last one...lol) Thank goodness there are groceries close! lol

You do really have to have quite the room for corn,

HEARTOFCHRIST - Do you have a terrace or patio where you could do a few container plants, a tomato or two? That at least would give you something.

If you have room, you should plant corn. I'll come up and visit and eat the corn. emoticon

I tried to have a garden several years ago when I had a large backyard but there were no bees in the neighborhood. I had to "be the bee" and try to pollinate the flowers myself and well that just didn't work out well. I had I think five tomatoes and one zucchini the whole summer. emoticon I'm in an apartment now so can't have a garden. Maybe someday...

I will be sticking with tomatoes (red and yellow) as well as some squash and green peppers. Not really into much else this year and the garden is to be small and raised to make it easy for me. I not really put much thought into herbs.

When I had a big garden I did it all, green beans and peas were favs as well as carrots and cucumbers. Kalorabi if I have room and mom always did radishes and green onions, not me tho. Watermelon or cantalope if you have the room is always a big hit with my family.

This great weather has got me thinkng about what to plant in my garden this summer. I've learned that for vegetables I need to stick to pickle style cucumbers, tomatos and one other (summer squash or brussel sprouts is my thought). Last year I had several herb pots that did very well. I used the mint, parsley, dill, and basil. What plant (esp herbs) do you grow and how do you use them?
