    Will you be planting a home garden in your yard this year?

    Because of the concern over food GMOs and food additives, are you planning a truck garden for your home? Will the work involved in raising your own food be worth it?

    I plan to plant a garden that has everything for a salad. I'm going to use garlic plants, radish plants, and marigolds to stave off  the little woodchucks that live way in the back of our yard. I also think I need some sort of fence too, because we do have deer that hang around back there. When I put up a short little chicken wire fence it wasn't tall enough, so I'm going taller on the fence this time.
    Happy gardening,

    An herb garden, yes. A vegetable garden, no. Hopefully, next year though. My husband has the green thumb and loves gardening. But I wanted to make sure I could handle it in case he went out of town, so this is my learning year.

    I have flower gardens in my yard, as well as a lettuce garden and last year I grew tomatoes and red chili peppers in containers, this year doing both and trying cucumbers in a container. I have some artichoke seeds and asparagus seeds I am going to plant too. I have a small yard, so I have a budding interest in learning more about container gardening for my vegetables. I also have a rabbit, and this will save some for me in the process too. smile

    I grow a small vegetable and herb garden every year (more because of the flavor of home grown over store bought then any GMO or other food worries) I have a grape, a raspberry, lemon tree and orange tree as well. I can grow enough produce through the year to make it to where I rarely have to buy the types of produce I grow so I think its worth it. I usually end up pickling, canning or preserving some of it and give a lot of them away.
