I planted two gardens this year. I planted my garden as usual at the family homestead and then when given the opportunity to plow up the back yard of my quad-plex apartment I jumped! Thus births my urban garden. It's small to me, although in comparison to the few I've noticed in my neighborhood, pretty large. My first attempts at planting resulted in a nice deconstruction by the neighborhood rabbits. I was so mad, they demolished everything. I then replanted some tomatoes, put up some makeshift cages and left for a week of vacation. I was delighted to come home from vacation and still have a garden. My tomatoes, peppers, beans, and squash are doing quite well now. I have also planted corn and plan to put in some okra and more beans soon.
