For the past three years, I have planted a small vegetable garden. It isn't your typical garden. I do mine in buckets. It works so well, and at the end of the summer, i don't have a big dirt garden in my yard. I just take the buckets, and store them till next year. I planted mine a little later then usual this year, but they are doing great. I don't have any veggies on them yet, but several of the plants have blooms and I can tell that I will have an abundance of tomatoes, squash, and zucchini in a month or so.
