  • My sister and I did during the summer. It was our first year and it did not do so well. But will try again next summer.

  • Yes, from early Spring to mid-Fall. We hope to eventually extend our growing season into Winter by using cold frames.

  • Every year I expand mine a little. This past summer was the 4th year of gardening at our home and I finally found an heirloom tomato that does well with our short growing season. I can't wait to put in a bunch of them next year. I love garden fresh tomatoes.

    Answer by LoriKeet at 7:04 PM on Dec. 9, 2010

  • Yes I do, every year, along with 5 apple trees, a pie cherry tree, 2 grape vines, and 2 large strawberry beds. I usually plant sweet corn, green beans, peas, onions, tomatoes, broccoli, cucumbers, salad greens, spinach, winter squash, pumpkins, zucchini, beets, carrots, hot and bell peppers. Right now the garden is under 4 inches of snow, but I start planning it right after the holidays when the seed catalogs hit my mailbox!
