    Hi Phil

    Yes a great article!! I am a way back gardener for last 40 years lol…oopppssss longer than that methinks!!
    Anyway we have 2 acres but most of it is not usable because of the deer. I do however have a fenced back yard and I am doing raised beds this year. Well I am hoping for one bed and it is not done yet lol. I am waiting for the man to get er done and as long as I am in time to plant green beans I don’t care. I do cucumbers and tomatoes in tubs and I did tumbler tomatoes last year in hanging baskets and it worked great. I planted zucchini in bags of soil, just cut the top out and laid the bag on one of my flower beds and it helped with bug control. I had a shopping bag with some lettuce planted and I may do that again this year. I mixed up a deer repellent to try and it worked really well for my front border of flowers. I used eggs and dish soap and oil and hot sauce and blended it and left it outside in the sun in a spray container. It goes bad and that is the idea lol..worked for rabbits also.
    Another fun year of gardening and I am looking forward to it.

      Dee, I envy all of that outdoor space to garden. I have none. I do grow herbs in flower pots in my living room widow, but no vegetables. 8^(

    While I don’t have a balcony, but rather a yard, this information was extremely helpful, as I am preparing to plant my garden for the season. Great article! Thanks for sharing.

      Hey Cristina, thanks for taking the time to visit and for leaving a comment.
      This is the season to think about planting your garden. Spring has sprung!
      I’ll see you back at the BT watercooler.

  3. Very useful article, Tom & Phil. I’m not in the situation of having an apartment and my daughter-in-law is the gardener in our family but even so, you had some useful tips in here. Thanks for sharing your expertise.

      Thanks Allyn. The article hopefully helps folks that have the space and are interested in producing their own GMO Free food. Hopefully it will get some people thinking, “Hey, I could do that!”
