Will you grow any fruits or veggies of your own this summer?

Do you have plans for a fruit or veggie garden this year? What kind of things will you grow (or attempt to grow as in my case lol)?

We are membres of our local organic CSA again this year but, as usual, I will attempt some tomatoes and eggplant (and maybe some pole beans) in big pots...I like to keep my hand in!

YES!! Last year I built a 4' x 4' raised garden bed, and I"ll be building a second one this year. Last year I grew corn, peas, herbs, spinach (not successful), beets (not successful) and swiss chard. I'm not sure what else I'll grow this year, but I'm looking at some heirloom veggie seeds for this spring and summer!

If I can keep the deer out of my garden, I'll be growing a lot more! :-)

We have seeds started inside for all sorts of stuff - multiple types of lettuce, cauliflower, beans, peppers, carrots, broccoli, cukes, all sorts of herbs, and much more. Outside we have strawberries already planted, onions, potatoes, chives, garlic, etc. We've got lots of tomatoes ready to go in the greenhouse soon too.

I've lived in an apartment for 8 years. I usually grow tomatoes, basil and cucumbers

We've been thinking a lot about moving back to the city, where we most likely wouldn't have room to garden as much as we do now. So, I've been pinning balcony garden ideas. Have you seen these?

I especially love the one made from a pallet!
