  • We have tomatoes, onions, garlic, corn, peppers, 3 types of beans, peas, zucchini, squash, watermelon, cantaloupe, and a few other things, and so far it's doing ok. The squirrels got most of the corn though. lol

  • We planted on this for the first time..It seems to be doing okay, we have green beans that we already picked and ate..we also planted carrots, fennel, peppers, tomatoes, watermelon and kids have helped with the whole process.

    Since this is our first year we have made some mistakes, like putting the plates out to early and one tray of seedlings drowned because we left it outside in a storm.

    All and all I think for our first time we are doing pretty good!

  • We have cabbage, yellow squash, tomatoes, cantaloupe, watermelon, bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, lima beans, string beans, and corn. We all take care of it together. It is so amazing watching everything grow!

  • We have tomatoes, jalapenos,cayenne peppers,banana peppers,red bell peppers,egg plant,Brussels sprouts,broccoli,3 types of lettuce,squash,cucumbers,watermelon,and strawberries. We also have an herb garden it has sage, basil, thyme, cumin, dill,oregano,spearmint, peppermint, and lavender. DS is only 2 so he doesn't do much, he mostly just plays in the dirt.

    We planted late because of the weather so we haven't pick anything yet but I can't wait to get some fresh veggies!

  • We planted sweet corn, tomatoes, a jalapeno pepper, carrots, yellow onions, radishes, green beans, cantaloupe, watermelon, broccoli, pickling cucumbers, red & green leaf lettuce, peas, golden beets, kohlrabi, pumpkins and several varieties of potatoes. Some things are doing very, while others are not doing well at all because our weather has been so screwy. Our son helps us to weed & water in the garden, although he's not always thrilled to do

  • I don't do gardens. They are a lot of work and require a lot of water.
