Since I have lived in Apartments most of my adult life, I learned to container garden. Now that I have a sunny yard, I am learning new things. I still container garden as our yards are open common area. Last year I grew lettuce and tomato's that I ate most of the summer I even planted radishes throughout the summer as they mature quickly. It was fun to use my own stuff to add to the wonderful bag of vegetables I got all summer at the farmers market. Being a vegetarian, I got the largest bag. I have to say, the vegetables picked the day before were amazing. And I tried things I never had before. I will get one again this summer.
