I've always wanted to have a vegetable garden. I think it's so cool to be able to grow your own food. Does anyone have a garden? Is it alot of work? What about herb gardens? I tried a chia herb garden before and it failed miserably.

gardens are quite a bit of work..tilling the soil,planting the seeds,keeping it watered and weed free...but the benefits are worth it i think...all those fresh veggies and you can freeze or can the extras to have all winter...we have herbs too like sage,thyme,cilantro,basil and oregano....we put down that heavy black plastic and cut the rows out for the plants it really cuts down on the watering and weeding...

I agree it is a lot of work but well worth the time and effort! The food seems to taste so much better when you grow it yourself!!

I have had gardens in the past, and I'm always learning something new. Yes gardens are a lot of work, but it is well worth it! The freshness of the veggies, and just walking out to the garden and just picking them. Plus it does save a lot of money as well. Most vegetable can be frozen one way or another. As far as herb gardens go, well I've only done scallions & chives. Though I'm interested in other herbs, as soon as I learn how to store them.

I grew up on a farm. My parents farmed and so did my granparents. There were always flower gardens and Vegetable gardens and it is very satisfying work. There is nothing better than fresh vegetables from the garden! Right now I live in an apartment and there is nowhere to plant anything but I long to own a house one day and have some gardens! :)
