Yes I garden and I live in an apartment. So I went to the garden store and found out what flowers grow in shade and Mr. Joe at the CAE Hardware store was very helpful. Now even in an apartment I can look out my living room window and see the beauty of God!!!

i was fortunate a few years ago to secure a 4' x 12' plot in a city farms garden. I've grown quite a variety of veggies to feed my family. I hope to be able to pass some of this down to my granddaughter this year. I only use cayenne pepper to discourage pests, and organic fertilizer (horse manure). This is as organic as I can get, without actually going through the certification process.

I have 2 large EarthBox containers. This season, Im growing strawberries and sugar baby melons. This is my first attempt at growing anything other than herbs. I also have small boxes of basil, rosemary, dill, mint, and flat leaf parsely.

I have planted a veggie garden for years, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, squash, peppers, herbs, etc. I also planted asparagus last year & that has come up this year and looks nice. Also my strawberry plant has doubled in size & has strawberries on it from now, that are quite tasty.

I planted a long row of Walker's Low (Catmint) along side of my vegetable garden to attract pollinating bees. It has worked like a charm. Not only do I have the beauty of the long lasting purple flowers produced by the Catmint my vegetable garden is thriving.

I have a large, varied ornamental container garden on my balcony. I support three rounds each season and love watching the plants grow without deer and rabbits mowing them down. Just seeing my garden each morning and evening lowers my stress level. Favorites (and staples) include: impatiens, New Guinea impatiens, sweet potato, marigolds (esp. Queen Sophia), dwarf petunias and reg. petunias for the hummingbirds. The rest vary according to heat. I also have a "lawn" of seeded grass in a window basket that doesn't require mowing.

Container gardening on my patio. Long table with many pots of tomatoes, green and yellow beans, spinach, swiss chard, chives, mint, basil, parsley and impatiens (for their pretty colors).

I have a 25 X 75' plot that we grow Tomatoes, Beans, Kale, Squash ( green & yellow ) a dozen or so Jalapeno plants, another dozen Bell Peppers, Cuccumbers, Okra and melons ( cantalop and Honey dew.
The plot is covered with 7 mil black tarp and I have installed a drip irrigation system. This keeps down the work required with weeding and does much to conserve water.
