We don't have much planting space at our apartment, but we have a decent sized patio for container gardening, and a little dirt patch where we can plant some herbs. I ordered a few things from the SSE catalog last week, and they just arrived:
I'd like to get some mint, and maybe some tomatoes, but those will have to wait until the farmer's markets start carrying seedlings. It'd be nice to grow a couple tomato plants on our own patio, but last summer was so strange - it rained and rained and rained. Our plants grew big, but we only had a few fruits ripen before the cold set in, and they didn't taste very good. I'm hoping we'll have better luck this upcoming season, and that we might find some friends/family who will lend us a little space.
I was looking through our pantry the other day, and found some Good Mother Stallard beans from the first garden Matt and I ever grew. We only have about a pint left from the harvest, and I know I should cook them up soon, but I'll be so sad when they're gone.
It'll be nice to have a 'real' garden of our own someday.
