Somehow I find vegetables seemed to be very sensitive and they require a lot tender, loving care compared to my many poisonous garden plants - I guess those poisons keep all the pest away.Regardless, if you are very interested in a vegetable garden, the attention and the tending will definitely produce a good yield in your garden.Good luck!
I'm still working on making my flower garden aesthetically pleasing, the veggies I'm just trying to keep alive and producing :)
I only have a very small veggie area, and it doesn't look pretty at all (thus it is located in a ralatively secluded place). But who cares if you can have lots of veggies thrive there?! lol
Thanks, James. There are lots of veggies you can grow in the tropics. I was surprised at the tomatoes I saw in West Africa where it was really hot in the day. Do you have a cool season, or is it just wet or dry?Nana and Ami: I'm with you!
I heard about the "ugly gardens" post. I say to each his own...some gardeners like to create beautiful veggie gardens, while others gardeners desire practicality. Either way, as long as the veggies taste good...I say it doesn't matter.
I don't grow many veggies because of the effort to keep bugs away in Florida. The few I do grow are mostly in pots. They usually look terrible by the end of summer.My garden only has to be beautiful to me.
@Susan: I agree!@Deborah: I think bugs are a problem in any climate, even in the Arctic summer. I grow my toms in pots, but then I forget to water them.
