    I had a kinda planter box; but, I've used mainly pots in the past. You need lots of room and keeping vigilant on watering them. We like that we can take them with us when they move and don't destroy the grass when we leave.

    Depends on what you are planting. Carrots and potatoes (especially sweet potatoes) tend to take up a lot of ground room. Tomatoes, peppers, herbs? No problem. I grew them in planters when I was apartment living.

    If your dog is already a digger, it may not work. Our dog is attracted to it, but the worst he does is roll around happily in this new and exciting filth and then demand we love him. He’s not so much one for digging.

    Can be useful, depending on what you’re doing. If possible, planters you can move easily are better - even if you’re in your forever home, you may want to rearrange where they are from year to year.

    I disagree with that a little. I’ve got both carrots and potatoes on the go at the moment, and both are in containers. My potatoes live in a bucket, and grow that way!

    My garden and my helper! I have tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, brussel sprouts, onions, lettuce, cauliflower, corn, carrots and herbs.
    The raised beds and boardwalk were built by the previous owners and I LOVE them! There are 3 more wine barrels on the left, 2 fruit trees and one with the herbs.

    Lettuce!

    Tomatoes! Three of these have turned red and the garden gnome ate them!

    Here's what we're working with and the progress of our garden.
    We are doing the fence ourselves and it should be done this weekend!

    Thanks! Its the one upgrade the previous owners actually did a good job on. It's even behind a gate so the kids and dogs can only be in there if I let them.

    In other garden backyard advenures, I just discovered a new, old neighbor.



    This cutie is Sidney and has lived next door for 52 years.
