Green plan: veggie garden planning

We're working on two green plan goals at once: planting a vegetable garden and planting containers for vegetables. My husband and I can not agree on our garden. First issue is that we don't have space in our small yard for raised beds. Second issue is our area has a short growing period. Third issue is that I want to start small and he wants to go big.

how does your gutter garden grow?
He's been doing research and came across an article about an DIY vertical garden. He has me sold but I also don't want him to go overboard. As of right now, he's planning on installing them on our fence, not the house and he'd like to plant kale, lettuce and onions.

As for containers, I going to do a few herbs and tomatoes.  I also feel that maybe all that is too much and maybe we just only grow on vegetable.

I'll keep you posted on where we land. We have a few more weeks so things may change.

  1. Yay, we'll be doing this garden adventure together! Mu hubby built me a garden table for the deck, so I'm going to start with a few containers, and see how I do. I want to grow lettuce mixes, peppers & tomatoes - but I think it might be too much for the first year. I'm planning to buy seedlings to start, and maybe I'll plant lettuce seeds if I don't kill the seedlings.
    Good luck!!!!
