So we rent and the yard is rock but still wanted a garden so we started a potted garden. I'm growing tomatoes, jalapeños, yellow sweet peppers, eggplant, strawberries, hanging Tom Thumb tomatoes, watermelon, and a sugar cane for my terrorist neighbor. Plus last week I started an herb garden with rosemary, basil, sage, chocolate mint, parsley.

I also want to get a potted dwarf Meyer lemon tree so will be looking at a local nursery this weekend. Anyone else growing a potted garden?

This is a beautiful selection and you’re making the most out of the situation, I applaud you Moo. I’m hoping to move soon, it’s been talked about for over a year.  Looks like it’s going to happen soon, so I’ll be hitting ou up for advice for my new potted garden soon!

Need to get some trellis for the everybody this weekend. This is the first time I have ever tried to grow anything. So far we got 5 little tomatoes.

My wife got him to talk and was like do you want to go in on a garden since he's in the main house and we have the Casita. He was all I would like to go sugar cane like my dad did when I was growing up. I thought it was a good gesture.

Speaking of the cats I had to cover the horse shoe pit because they were using it as a litter box and I put cactus on the wall to try to keep them out of the yard.

They are much more flavorful than anything in the store.

Cucumber is the same. When I transplanted it last week I thought I had killed it. 10 days later and the growth is crazy.

The fuck did you just say about container gardening? 

I know you didn't rape that hooker, and am normally cool with everything you post here, but you just crossed a line, mister. 

If you don't apologize, the consequences will never be the same.

I grow stuff every year. I've got a bunch of hot peppers going this year, so far.

We have grown tomatoes and peppers the last couple years in pots. Didn't have  much luck with the tomatoes last year as we got nailed with hail a couple times. 

Are you using fertilizer?

I add liquid fertilizer once a week and the tomatoes grow like crazy right after.

Thanks but it's nothing elaborate I raised them off the ground with pallets and got a hanging plant holder.
