My wife and I built a garden for her a couple years ago, and so far have been fairly unsuccessful in producing anything edible.
The first year it was kind of a trial and error run, and the 2nd year (this past one) we had that miserable drought so that didn't help. She usually plants a little bit of everything, I guess still testing to see what survives best in our climate. Tomatoes, green beans, cilantro, jalapeno and habanero peppers, squash, strawberries, some herbs, and some other things I can't think of. I've only eaten any peppers out of it...
I've given her a hard time for not keeping up with it enough, but hopefully this year will be better...
we don't garden, but really should learn. produce prices are up there again, at least out here and we go through onions and bell peppers pretty quickly. I suppose strawberries would be good as well as my oldest gobbles them up fast.
I do not have a green thumb by far but just started rainwater harvesting and have been thinking about creating a raised garden of some sort. Doing some research on what type of wood and material I should construct this thing of.
Its nice to have this, I have a small garden in front of my home and after a massive look after I can't Lilly flower in my garden. Although I have a swimming pol and now I intend that I'll throw the fishes in that pol..
