That’s so cool! And inspiring – I guess living in the city’s not an excuse anymore? Keep us updated!

that’s such a good idea! personally i couldn’t do that, cause i love being outside and busting my ass on a huge garden, since thats an option for me, but thats really creative of you! definitely keep us updated!

living in the city isn’t an excuse, lol. you can have a container garden! i have like no backyard (doing the huge garden at someone elses house) and i still plan on doing a container garder. they are super easy!

That’s awesome! Good for you! I got a head start on my garden too in one of the Burpee greenhouse thingers (lavender, parsley, oregano, tomato), and I’ll be moving them outside later. Do you plan on moving them out later or will they be staying inside?

I always thought they needed some amount of sunlight? We don’t have a balcony or window ledge or anything, and the cats would chew right through whatever we put on the radiator ledge by our bedroom window.

My Fiance and I have been seriously discussing the practicalities of going organic. He battled stomach cancer and has PUD (Peptic Ulcer Disease) and controlling his diet is key to him staying healthy. We want to have a small garden plot tilled in the backyard and then plant a lot of the veggies you mentioned in addition to several others. We think that if we combine fresh from our garden with “organic” from the store…we shouldn’t take too much of a financial hit.

I think it’s great that so many people are starting to grow their own fresh produce….keep us updated as your “garden” grows.

Make sure to transplant a LOT when it starts growing like crazy over the summer! I didn’t do it enough last year and only got 4 tomatoes out of my harvest.

Also, basil is amazingly easy to grow, I highly recommend that and banana peppers! Zucchini does well in a slightly larger pot!

I love container-gardening, but since I’m moving in May, I don’t really have time to get going. What a bummer!

That is AMAZING! Good for you! I live in the city in a condo, and my friend and I asked a neighbor who wasn’t using their backyard garden plot if we could plant there – they were so awesome and agreed! We did this last summer and it was soooo nice to have organic veggies available all the time. It was a great year for tomatos, because it was so hot and dry. Good luck with your garden!

that’s amazing. I swear I have a black thumb. For aloe vera thriving on neglect…I probably killed it already.
