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.

Hi Jenny - my 11 year old son is also called Augustine. My daughter is called Magdalen - Augustine is not a common name and I love it - obviously you do too

Been gardening for 40 years and love it. However, I do a lot of canning and freezing all summer long that way I have my fruits and vegetables all year long and I know what's in my food. If your a beginner start small until your familiar with what your growing. Just to tell you a story I work in a garden center that is mostly vegetables and flowers plus landscaping. We also do contract work for a very large pick your own produce farm. We had one tray left of watermelon plants from this farmer so we were told to take what we wanted. Seeing I had the most room and garden they gave me a lot. For some reason they grew like weeds and had 35 pound watermelons and a half acre of them. Needless to say we gave so many away people did not want them. They were so good I wish I had one now. There are so many stories I could tell about my gardening but what fun would that be you need to create your own garden and stories

SIXPETE, I just visited the self-watering container site on Pinterest. What a neat idea and one that I can try! Thank you for sharing!
