We currenty only have a tomato plant here, we had two blueberry bushes that only lived 2 weeks... Thankfully my dad has a green thumb and a huge garden on his property and I take the girls there to help plant, weed, and pick.
I'm really looking forward to moving onto some more fertile land. It's hard to grow in rock and clay! Maybe I should have looked to see what *does* grow well in that environment (weeds seem to do very well! Haha)
anyhow, show me your gardens! I love end of summer gardens!

I am so jealous! I want to grow a garden so badly but nothing ever works. I live in northern Arizona and just can't figure out how to make it work here. It makes me nuts as we are vegetarians and growing our own fruits and veggies would save us so much money.

 My girlfriend and I were just talking about how I could grow a garden w/the soil I have and she suggested using pots and purchasing the good gardening soil from the store.  That's a bonus in many ways b/c that also makes my plants movable.  I think I may try next year w/plenty of research.  :)

Oooh Debbie, I knew I could count on you! I love love love those pics! Hopefully if we get this new house I will have my own garden. We do tomato plants in pots every year, and the girls love it.

What is the thing with the glass jar on top? And can I get a closer pic of garlic? I never even thought of growing garlic!
