Does anyone garden?

Ever since I started as a merchandiser for a flower company, I've developed a green thumb and I love it! I am growing pumpkins and different kinds of flowers. I have bought so many though, my deck is being over taken!

Oh I'm so jealous! Our family garden is all but dried up with this drought that we are having, had one tomato and some squash. Everything is dying. I love gardening too! We also grow 10 acres of pumpkins and they are doing great, the drought isn't hurting them yet. I really want to learn how to garden in raised beds, our back yard is very rocky and bad soil so if we do that then maybe our garden will do even better.

We had a drought kind of too. Now it's been raining for days. On and off. So my veggies are doing much better.

I can see this post is from a month ago, but I just saw it now. I've started gardening recently and really enjoying it. I grew lettuce didn't taste nice, so fed it to our neighbours' rabbits. Now growing tomatoes which are starting to ripen as we speak - very rewarding.

I started my first flower and vegetable garden this year. I live in Wyoming and we are in a major drought right now, I believe our 4th of July fireworks shows have all been called off due to chance of wildfire. We've seen quite a few fires pretty close to home this summer already! We are just doing one or two of a variety of veggies this year to see what will grow and what won't with the soil and amount of water we *don't* get! So far our broccoli, pumpkins, tomatoes and strawberries are looking good. The flowers are all doing alright for the most part and the melons and cucumbers did not make it! We will see at the end of the season what worked out and what didn't!

We Garden. I have a 30x50 foot garden plot with a small strawberry and raspberry patch. Eventually I want to get some apple trees and cherry trees. I grow only the things that we eat in our gardens.So in my veggie patch I have corn, shelling peas, pumpkins, zucchinni, beets, carrots, radish, dill, sunflowers, beans, onions, and lettuce. I tried cucumbers again this year will a big fail, as well as garlic. We had a lot of rain but not enough heat, and I grow everything from seed. My tomato plants are growing great and I'll be transplanting them as soon as I get some rogue raspberry shoots moved over to the berry patch lol. I love to garden for self sufficieny and hope that one day, produce and food can all be produced from our acreage with minimal importing of products into our home.

We started a garden this year. We are growing tomatoes, green beans, lettuce, carrots, peppers, jalapenos, squash, zucchini, eggplant. No veggies yet, but everything is starting to flower. This is our first time trying this, so fingers crossed. Ive also planted wild flowers, jasmine, azaleas in my front yard.

my husband & i have a small garden, but we're trying to expand it & eventually have a wide variety of vegetables. we don't do many flowers, mostly veggies so we can save on our grocery bill.
