Thumbs down Do You Do Any Gardening?

I started doing some container gardening on my balcony. I am finding it to be very relaxing and a great stress reducer. Do any of you garden?

Here are my strawberries so far.

Starting to rework the landscaping around the house.....

Fighting a strong urge to plant a garden larger that we really need....

Want to do some tomato and peppers in some 5 gallon buckets....
My dad did that years ago and always had fresh maters....

Thinking about a few herbs in pots....(for cooking)....

We have a half acre...but also a lot of big trees......great shade in the summer, not good for a garden...

Very relaxing to tend the garden....

I have couple Bonsai trees but I'm not sure if you can call it gardening. I agree that it can be very relaxing though.

I grow cherry tomatoes in containers on the deck and 6-7 tomato plants in a raised bed just out side the deck.

After years of playing lucky pot bingo each spring for my plants at the BORG I returned to growing my own from seed. They are about an inch tall right now.

This is a horrible shot and no matter where I stand I can't get all the plants in the picture, but it gives you an idea what I am doing. The lights you see are full spectrum UV bulbs to give a little extra babying to those which need it. (Yes, that is Lemur hiding under the chair. He is busy mourning the place he likes to hang off the balcony.)

His side of the story is that he is protecting your plants from errant chipmunks.

I live in southern California. We found out the Ace hardware has a great garden section. Seriously I do gardening to unwind from my Web marketing. Web marketing takes countless hours as everyone knows

Our balcony faces North so no direct sunlight. The only things we seem to be able to grow are impatients, fushias and begonias. They tend to grow towards the outside of the balcony which means the containers need constant turning.

Wish there were more things we could grow. It is nice looking out at the flowers.

I myself have planted some trees. Apples, cherries, etc. About 30. But haven`t checked on them in a while as it`s pretty far. But it counts as gardening

Container Garden Update: Today my son Nick, showed up with a 2x12 board and a couple of concrete blocks to create a shelf for the back row of my mini garden. Pretty soon I may have bleachers. LOLOL. The light you see on the nearest plant is from a UV light I have pointed at it because it is expecting babies soon! There are currently 6 planters in the back row, 6 planters in the front row, and 5 planters hanging.

This looks good. My girl does all the gardening work, I don't have the time for it. I would probably grow mango trees if I had time for it, best fruits...

I used to love gardening with my Grandparents, in the greenhouse, in the garden growing all sorts - not actually sure why I stopped after they passed.
