Home Farming

How cool!  I have grown my own vegetables for the last two years and I am border-line obsessed with it. I live in a townhouse community with a very small "yard/patio".  My space is extremely limited, but each year, I figure out some more ways to make it work. I have several shepherd hooks in the garden and this year am thinking of hanging a few Topsy Turvy gardens on them.

I am also considering doing some indoor gardening as well. Does anybody have any experience with these?


My sister has much more space than I do and grows an impressive amount of veggies each year. This year, I proposed share-cropping! :)  I am going to help my sister & her family, both in the garden and financially with the start-up! YEA! I'm so excited! I'm over there at least once a week as is, so why not? I will keep you updated on our progress.

I personally have tried growing tomatoes inside but they didn't make it :( My Dad has a huge garden but he starts a lot of his plants inside but you need to have lots of light whether it is natural or a lamp - oh and he plants tomatoes in large barrels but you could put them in a planter - if you start them now just remember to bring them inside when it is cool at night!

Good Luck!

We're doing this same thing with our brother and sister-in-laws this year, since we also have a very small yard, and need the little space we have for our dogs. I'm very excited! but I am hoping to start my own small indoor herb garden this year too.
