I have a small organic garden that I am growing tomatoes, green-beans, cantaloup, corn, cucumbers, zucchini, beets, and some green-bell peppers, marigolds. I live on the the mid-east coast in a small apartment and I started my garden a few months ago to help my family out with food because some months we run short. I like growing things, it makes me feel closer to God and it is so amazing and makes me feel happy to see something come from such a small little seed. It is also, a great feeling when I can grow something that tastes so much better then the crap (MSG, and GMOs) you buy in the stores and then feed it to my family. Eating organic (as much as I can) has made me feel so much better too, I am like a new person.

Well anyways, nice to meet all of you! :)

This seems like a pretty quiet web site, with very few Hi's to new comers. Well I am starting to work on a web site where I can show off some of my garden, when it is done I will post the link. :)

I just learned a valuable leason, Do Not Use these in products in containers for your vegetable planets::(

Miracle-Gro® Organic Choice® All Purpose Plant Food
Miracle-Gro® Organic Choice® Garden Soil

Instead use this:

Miracle-Gro® Organic Choice® Potting Mix

I could not figure out why my plants where yellow and seemed in such bad shape, and then I looked on Miracle-Gro's® web site and found the answer:

Can the Miracle-Gro Organic Choice Garden Soil be used in containers?

Do not use outdoor soils/mixes in containers; garden and top soils are too dense for container plants, and may suffocate plant roots.

This soil is best used by mixing in with the native soil. Do not backfill the planting hole of trees and shrubs with the straight product, as this can prevent the roots from leaving the planting hole. Mix at least one half native soil in before backfilling this type of planting hole.

I really hope by posting this, it will help someone else from making the same mistake!

Welcome! Sorry you didn't get many welcome to your initial post. Someday it is pretty quiet.
Sounds like you have a nice garden going! I, too, love to garden for the same reasons you posted. and I enjoy canning as much as I can so we can continue to eat our homegrown veggies in the winter months.
