Default Who all is gonna plant a garden?

My garden failed bad last year. Ive figured out that it couldn't get enough sunlight from the pines last year ... I'm gonna plant a few things again this year and plant them above ground using some cut 55 gallon drums. That way I can keep them in the sunlight. I'm also gonna try a potato tower...Any of y'all ever tried one?

I have one beefsteak mater and one green pepper plant. May pick up jalapeno plant too.


The only "garden" Im even remotely interested in growing would land me about 20 years in prison if caught.

Mary Beth started all our plants for the garden by seed a few weeks ago and has been taking care of them and getting them ready. So yes we are. Gotta plow up a spot this week.

I'm going to plant 3 or 4 mater plants, a squash or two, and some jalapenos.

Last year I had good success with my tomatoes and peppers.

I don't have the time to take care of something huge, just a few plants works fine for us.

That's me too. I don't want to plant too much.

Not this year. Had a big one last year, but I think the condo HOA would frown on it if I tilled up all their grass to plant a garden.
