Moving later this year and will finally have plenty of room for a garden! Saving this article for then!

When I lived in Northern New Hampshire, I had a huge raised bed area of sifted loam that I grew all the vegetable we needed year round. It was a chore, but a delightful one.

Dearly Beloved has just put the last bean plant in the ground-we buy transplants as the cats will not leave the seed pellets alone. We have beans, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, kale, and lots of herbs, all in pots. Works great!

I love heirloom tomatoes and they are so expensive at the store. I was recently told that they do really well in containers so next year, I just might have to see if I can grown one heirloom tomato plant. More than that would be way too many tomatoes for just 2 people (and hubby doesn't eat that many tomatoes so most of them would be consumed by me.)

It's fun to garden, but doesn't make it cheaper, water costs a lot, soil amendments, etc. Average person, it's for fun. Taste isn't that much better, truth be told. It's ok if you have time in summer to show kids.

If you want to eat fresh vegetable starting a vegetable garden at home is a good idea. This is also helping to save your money. For this you need to some fertile soil and a few plants. But to be a really successful vegetable gardener you will need to understand what conditions take to keep your plants healthy and vigorous.
