    I have no room in my yard for gardenning. My neighbor lets me use his garden box. He likes the sweet cherry tomatoes and onions, so its a win- win for both families!
    Every year I plant onions and tomatoes and some herbs. This year for the first time I planted Detroit red beets and couple cucumber seedlings.
    I have planted greenGypsy peppers, Sweet Cajun Bell red peppers and Hungarian wax pepper.(yellow)


    My tomatoes are:
    Sweet million
    Super sweet 100
    Big Beef tomato


    My herbs;
    Moss curled double parsley


    I enjoy gardening because it helps me relax. I check my veggies and flowers everymorning I love watching them grow.
    We eat alot of salad and herbs. Its much cheaper to grow our own tomatoes and herbs.
