One of my first posts was about container gardening. Found here:

Since then we moved (about a block away!) and we have a large plot along our walkway. Last year we successfully grew pumpkin, tomatoes, lettuce, zucchini, snap peas, and strawberries! Now this year we have the snails under control and we are at it again! Spring has sprung here in Southern California so we transplanted our seeds mid April. We have strawberries, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber, pumpkin, summer squash, carrots, green onions, spinach, lettuce, chamomile, and stevia. I’m harvesting the chamomile to dry now from a plant i started on our gardens border but the flowers keep on coming! I hope to have plenty of tea packets for the rest of the year. In addition to our garden I also have herbs moved from pots at our old house. I have basil, rosemary, cilantro, thyme, mint, and parsley. I will update everyone on the progress!
