I've been growing my own for years & I'm always extolling the virtues to all & sundry. This year I'm going to be putting a poly tunnel in & expand my horizons. I live in the North of Scotland, so there are things I can't grow outdoors. I have spaghetti squash seeds that I'm going to try for the first time this year. I grew butternut squash last year & they were successful.

Good luck to anyone that decides to take the plunge!

My husband grows some garden vegetables and if nothing else, it helps feed the bugs and birds in the yard. I'm not sure if the squirrels get in on it or not.

My husband and I have always said that we want to grow our own food when we get a house. We have a small plant in our house that we're trying to grow a couple of herbs in. But once we're done with apartment living we can grow much more!

I live in an apartment, but would love to learn how I can grow a garden from my patio!! I love the idea of having my own fresh organic produce.

We've been "experimenting" with a few veggie plants the past 2 yrs & getting ready to expand to a few more varieties and some blueberry bushes! My next project is to learn to can!

I've been growing some of our own food for years and have been using organic methods for the past 10 or more years. I freeze the extras and am still using last summer's produce. I've been wanting to expand to fruit and this year may be a good time to start...even if I may not actually get any fruit the first season. It will be fun to try! AND gardening is great exercise.

This looks really interesting and I was wondering if you have any online resources for starting a container garden. I live in an apartment, but I think I could manage a couple of tomato and pepper plants.
