Do you have a vegetable garden?

We have moved to the city from the countryside for about five years. When we were living in the countryside, my father planted a small vegetable garden beside our house, but now, we can only buy vegetables from the food market instead of taking from my father's vegetable garden. In our new home, we have a not big balcony. My father always wanted to start a new vegetable garden, but he didn't do that when considering the space and the inconvenience. Several days ago, I encouraged him and bought some rectangular plastic pots for him. He was so delighted and immediately got a bag of soil from a building site. Today, you can see the green spouts now. Not for a long time, we will be able to eat fresh vegetables. Do you eat vegetables planted by your own? And, how do you plant a vegetable garden?

In term of the cost of living in the city, it is definitely more costly to plant your own vegetables. You do not have the land for it, and you have to buy fertilizers to keep the plants growing well. However, in term of enjoyment, gardening is indeed a great activity.

yes I have had a garden for years and as I have gotten older I plant a lot of veggies in pots and they are under the big tree in the back yard. I have 9 different herbs growing year around in pots so my wife alway have fresh herbs. She just goes out and cuts off what she needs for that day
