    My friends keep telling me to make a flower garden in my yard. But what I would like is to have a garden full of vegetables that I can actually grow and eat later. I hope that you can make an article about growing these kinds of plants. I want to eat homegrown tomatoes, spring onions, potatoes, or beans.

    I have always wanted to have a garden outside my house. I only have a small backyard and I do not know what to do. I just want to see flowers as they bloom during the summer and spring times. I did not know that there are a lot of things to consider. Better put my thinking cap on.

    My garden would be quite different. I live in an apartment and I do not have a backyard to work with. I plan to buy little pots and plant some seeds on them. Hopefully, all these seeds will grow into a beautiful plant after a few months. I will share some photos soon.
