Don't hurt yourself laughing please

When my neighbor passed I lost garden privileges in his yard, so I make the best of it.

Parsley, dill, 4 tomatoes (3 better boys, one cherry), green bell pepper and a mini egg plant

Please don't laugh

I won't laugh, you've got more in soil than I do at the moment.

I don't laugh at anyone who gets off their butt and does something.

Enjoy your tomatoes (gateway drug to edible gardening).

It's scaled back big time. For years I had tomatoes, green beans, butter beans, squash and okra and some years I tried "different" stuff

We have a nice farmers market to fill in the gaps

Here is what I used to grow in. My neighbor was getting old so I did his garden and of course shared.

Patio garden, nice.  Add basil.

You could do pole beans with that setup.  Another pot, and a long stick in it.
Or stuff like cucumbers up a trellis.

Google vertical gardening for more ideas.

Basil and my stomach do no not get along for some reason. I did grow it and give it to my neighbor, she made pesto.

I tried cukes in pots, they didn't produce. I also tried squash, didn't produce. Some things just need space or real dirt

I'm not laughing.

I tip my hat for you doing something other than watching TV.

Still too cold here but getting ready.

Doing cherry tomatoes and peppers in buckets on the deck.

In the ground will be several types of sugar snap peas and bush beans, pole beans, cukes, summer squash and zucchini, carrots, spaghetti squash... that's it I think.

Good job OP.
