I think you would be an amazing gardener Oakos. The trick to it is building a raised garden bed. A lot of areas don't have the best soil which means a lot of work, money and dedication to get the organic soil just right. It's best to just build a little wall area and throw some enriched store bought dirt in it!
Last spring/summer I made this little bad boy for my wife (and myself too)
We overplanted, better luck this year I hope!
Then in late summer I got to work on something my wife has wanted for a very long time.
To this [note the previous construct in the background :)]
Never underestimate the powers of a stubborn half Irish/Canadian man with a shovel and a level. I need a newer picture though with the firepit, chairs and tables. Next step is to run electricity there so we can display movies out at night.
