So, as an extension of my herb garden, I have decided to try my hand at a vegetable garden. No, I do not actually have any land. But yes, I have a wonderful south-facing balcony. Yesterday, after work, I ran to Osh before it closed and got the following: tomato, bush bean, and zucchini plant I also got some compost, some soil addition, and a tomato cage. All for $11 buckaroos.
Now, I just have to get some soil to put into the giant container I got at Target and be on my way. I'm afraid that my container may be too shallow, but we'll see if it works. If not, not a big deal.
On a related note, the First Family has also decided to grow a vegetable garden. Albeit, they have 1,000 square feet to do so (compared to my 20 square foot balcony). I will post pictures as soon as I get going.
