When we move to SA I would really like to have a vegetable garden. Not a big one, but just a small one with a few different vegetables like tomatoes etc. One thing I have noticed in my housing search is that none of the homes seem to have vegetable gardens. Is there a reason for this? Here in NYS the growing season is so limited, and I was really looking forward to having a garden.

I am going to try that "Square Foot Gardening" in the spring...suppose to have a GREAT yield with mimized effort. Google it, looks VERY interesting.

If I remember correctly, someone on the Forum has tried it...there was a thread concerning it a while ago.

Growing a garden is easy in SA year round. Too many shade trees in the backyard can hamper a garden though so be sure you have a place in the backyard with alot of direct sunlight. I grew tomatoes, yellow squash, okra, cucumbers, spinage, swiss chard, lettuce... you name it you can grow it in SA. Low maintenance too.

Well....if I have to choose between a nice little garden and my HUGE Live Oak Tree (3 people hold hands and can barely reach around the trunk) I guess I will stick to the HEB produce dept!
