closest thing to a garden

This is as close to a garden as i can get. If you look you can see my tomatoes and peppers mixed in with my flowers. There is a long pot with onions in it up on the porch.

This is the whole front yard with all my pots. We are not allowed to dig holes in the ground while we live on base so this is as good as it gets.

These are my potatoes in the back yard. I was told that you can put 8-12 in of dirt in the bottom of the cans, plant the taters, then add more dirt as they grow. The soil is about 8 in from the top of the cans now. The potatoes are growing wonderfully, but i have no idea what i'll get when i dump them out this fall.

It's a pity you don't get a real garden but your pots look really pretty.

Gorgeous house. How strange that you can't dig holes to even plant. Ahh...the government.
