I'll probably start with a kit, if/when I do it. There is a supplier over in the Vernon area with a very resonable price. Its been over a year since I looked at his stuff, but for the price I remember I didn't think I could build something any cheaper. Especially the first go around. The building something on my own would have been more to make it more practical for my situation.

Thanks for starting this back Bob! Your garden looks great!:clap

Mike and I have beendigging and planting since Feb, many different flowers, fruits, & veggies, but here are the tomatoes- we planted 4: 2 Goliath, 1 cherry, and 1 Better Boy. In the picture are one of the Goliaths and the cherry:



A closeup of the cherry tomatoes coming out:



A couple of the Better Boys.... can't wait to put these on a BLT:



The Goliaths are starting to produce and all the plants are flowering nicely!



Not pictured is our 5th tomato plant, a Better Boy we planted in early February, just because we were chomping at the bit to put something in the ground, and we've renamed it the Survivor Tomato as it's survived, uncovered, through every cold snap we've had.

Fresh home-grown, homemade salsa isn't too far off- we have bell peppers coming out too!



These are my first gardens..... very satisfying indeed and the tomato thread on PFF last year was a big inspiration, and a great excuse for Mike and I to dig in the dirt!



A couple of the other "fruits" of our labor: (This is when we are really glad we kept the chickens in the backyard for a while.....LOL...)





We planted 3 of the rabbiteye variety blueberry bushes- a Beckyblue, a Premier, and this one is the Climax- we're counting the days on these....:hungry:

Any ripe tomatoes yet? I want to try those hanging tomatoes. Seems like a real space saver! Did they offer cherry tomato plants also?

Been working the squash and zuks as well as spinisch, lettuce and mustard greens pretty hard. The tomatoes need a couple weeks and we're talking Caprese Salad!!



If anyone needs herbs let me know - the Parsley has gone ape-y!

thats normal, anything that gets its food from the sun wants to grow towards the sun. thats why sometimes you see trees that are crooked. thats because another tree or something at one point in time was blocking the sunlight and it moved to where it could get more sunlight.
