Do you garden?

I grow a vegetable garden every summer. I have a 16x16 foot plot of soil, and several large containers. I grow tomatoes, snow peas, zucchini, cucumbers, leeks, celery, potatoes. This year I'm going to attempt celeriac, and cardoon

  • Last year my son and I did container gardening. We had tomatoes, and cucumbers.
    I had the space to do a bigger garden but no help with it.

  • The last time I tried to put out a couple of things it attracted rats so now I don't do it.

  • I used to garden extensively, both flowers and veggies. Now I just have a few pots since I live in a condo. I tried those upside down strawberry and tomato planters with hardly any success, so it's only flowers for me now.

  • We love gardening.. we do zucchini, yellow squash, green beans, peas, carrots, beets, radishes and an assortment of herbs. Can't wait until this snow melts to start up again.

  • I attempt a few flowers and usually fail. We have a huge veggie garden (with a few fruits as well). We change it up a little from year to year. Always a big variety of stuff. I'm guessing it's about 100x70 feet (a couple years ago it was 80x50 and I know it gets a little bigger every year) and it's still not big enough for everything I'd like to do (we can/freeze a lot).

  • celeriac is also called celery root, and cardoon is a plant who's leaves taste like artichoke

  • No. I live in the desert and have plastic grass.
