    No chickens allowed lol.

    We grow cucumbers, zucchini, asparagas beans, bell peppers, hot peppers (the 3rd hottest in the world, 1 million units) cherry tomatoes, regular tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes and sometimes corn. In our herb containers we have spearmint, peppermint, chocolate mint and basil.

    [​IMG] looking good! not sure where you're at but things seem to be holding up good during this heat. The only veggies I've been able to keep alive is assorted peppers, broccoli, and carrots. All the tomatoes got burnt up and we decided just to pull them.

    Nice little urban garden [​IMG]


    One thing I'd seriously suggest/recommend is growing heirloom tomatoes too - Try a huge variety of different colors and types.



    Are your beans growing separately from everything else? You know the best thing to do with them is grow them among your squash, peppers, and/or tomatoes. [​IMG]

    Quote:that explains why yours looks like it's thriving and not crispy like mine. the peppers love the heat though, good thing I have a lot of them

    If I had to live that close to somebody else I think I would go postal. I know I would sufficate and just fall over dead. How do you do it? But you garden looks better that anything I can get to grow.

    Nice garden! All I can seem to grow this year is jalapenos and tomatoes. Good idea with the planters!

    Ugh, I know! I've lived my whole life in the suburbs. I hate it!! I'm at least in a sorta suburban sorta country spot right now. Houses are a bit more spread out. Someday I will have my house in the country... someday. :(


    Anyway, great garden o.p.!
