So I'll be interested to see how it works out. I have one more box to set up - and I'm planning to do some green beans and whatnot in it. Surprisingly I already have sprouts from the seeds (planted a week ago yesterday) and I already have tiny flowers on my hanging tomato plants. So far I'm finding this to be rather fun, and I haven't killed anything yet.

My Tiny Little Garden
I have a tiny little house and a tiny little yard - so it would make sense to have a tiny little garden, right? This is the first time I've ever tried to grow any sort of vegetables, and I'm pretty excited. Chuck made me two 2x4 garden boxes (with plywood bottoms that have drainage holes) and brought me feet to set them up on. I got some compost from Julie, and then Chuck helped me fill one of the boxes, and I planted a green pepper plant, two jalopeno pepper plants, lettuce, and spinach:
There is a cherry tomato plant in the back left corner, but I think it's going to need to be pulled out and hung also. But I needed to get it out of it's tiny little pot. Then Chuck helped me hang some tomato plants in these "Topsy Turvy" planters:
