SU3 8 years No, but I wish we did! AucuneRancune 8 years When I was growing up my dad kept a big veggie garden in our backyard every summer. He'd grow zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, raddishes, different varieties of squash, melon and hot peppers, and all different kind of herbs. We'd have such an overload of veggies that he'd send me to the neighbors' houses every few nights with a paper bag full of the enormous veggies. And this was in Los Angeles! amber_castaldo 8 years I would love to grow my own veggies but for some reason I just keep killing my outside plants. I can't even grow grass! alas, I am not meant to be a gardener. so sad i-heart-monster 8 years We have a totally rockin' veggie and herb garden - it takes up about a quarter of our back yard and we're on a quarter acre of land... There is nothing better than picking carrots (which I did this morning) out of the garden and rinsing them off and then eating them. It's all worth the effort and work! weeshebeast 8 years tiny apartments do no lend themselves to tidy herb patches. oh, for a house with a little yard... kimbit 8 years It is easy to grow herbs in containers on a balcony, tomatoes and arugula both grow well in containers as well. Some are more hardy than others, mint is like a weed, so it grows well, thyme, chives and oregano also grow well. I find basil a bit hard to keep for some reason. Rosemary also hardy. Try to buy plants that are already started if you are not good at watering, when you grow them from seeds, you have to really make sure that they don't dry out. rubialala 8 years I would if I had the space because I think it would be an incredible learning experience for my son. Beautifulbarbie 8 years No. Midnightkiss4u09 8 years No, but I have a huge flower garden. lulis 8 years I have a very nice large garden. :) bookgirl 8 years I grow some of my own (basil, thyme, mint) but the others I just buy. colormesticky 8 years Nope. My dogs eat everything (including cactus and a very large jasmine plant), and I don't really like fresh herbs anyway. figurine 8 years I would love to, but I really don't have the space. aistea311 8 years When I have the space I am going to grow my own mint for my mojitos and my own cilantro for everything else! mollipop 8 years When I was younger I had a little herb garden that my grandmother started for me. Unfortunately, I wasn't good about taking care of it as often as I should have and it died. Now that I'm older and more responsible I'd definitely give it another try since I especially love fresh oregano and Italian parsley. GeikoSera 8 years I TRY to..... ;P LadeeVolFan 8 years I love growing things on my patio. Georgia clay doesn't make for a good garden. I have yellow pear tomatoes, grape tomatoes, banana peppers, jalepenos, flat leaf parsley and basil all growing on my patio. Between that and my flowers it looks like a jungle out there! :D calibabi 8 years i would LOVE an herb garden! it's not so easy living in an apartment though...i've thought about getting those chia herb gardens...has anyone ever used those? ALSW 8 years I wish, but I'm really bad about keeping plants alive! partysugar 8 years When I get my house in the Spanish countryside I want to have a huge Martha Stewart-ish garden and grow everything. ChapstickAddict 8 years I tried and my cat ate the baby plants. I live in an apartment and the only area that gets enough sunlight is also accessible to the cat so growing my own herbs is out until I move. onesong 8 years i grow my own herbs--i live in an apartment so not enough room for anything else. believe me, the little extra work it takes is SO much better than having to buy whole bunches of say, cilantro for a guacamole, or parsley to wilt in a sauce. and they're pretty! socalcutie 8 years I grow them... but they have a tendency to die... LaurenG22 8 years there is nothing like FRESH herbs and homegrown tomatos!!! CestLaVie 8 years I put yes but really, I just started a couple months ago, I have a potted basil and chives plant on my windowsill.
