Growing Flowers, Plants and Vegetables on My Deck in a Small Space


I enjoy gardening, digging in the dirt, planting and watching things grow. Gardening relieves stress and make me appreciate all of God's creation.
This is my first stab at growing vegetables in a grow box on my deck.

    Snow peas will also do well in an 8x8x24" pot. They don't require a lot of fertilizer, so you can reuse potting mix and still get a crop. I plant them 2 months before the last frost date in Minneapolis. If the night falls below 28 degrees, I just bring them in from the porch.
