I stumbled on the website for this place the other day and thought it might prove a useful resource for you:

Fertile Garden Supply online organic garden catalog.

Good luck!

I've already picked a couple of tomatoes from my plants this year.

We have one tomato so far...

My neighbor, who didn't even plant a tomato bush but has a big mound of dirt behind his house from digging out to do some plumbing work was about to pull out a "big weed" that was growing in this dirt pile. Then he saw the tomatoes. His plant looks better than all of mine!

I have about 20 tomatoes just starting to turn red....the beginnings of an egglplant, the cucumbers are just finishing flowering, and my pepper plants are just starting to bloom.

It could be a while before I can enjoy the "fruits" of my labor!

You guys are all making me jealous! I can't start a new garden because my house is on the market.

In the past I had a small raised garden bed, and also used planter boxes on the deck. Constantly battled bugs! Paul James (HGTV) did a segment once on raised gardening, but without the boxes - more along the lines of long mounds of soil. And don't forget about "square foot gardening"...

I've picked about 4 or 5 lbs of tomatoes so far and have a lot of green ones on the vine. I hope I have enough ripe ones at the right time for the Tomato Festival in June.

Unless you've got a LOT of land to work with, I think square foot gardening is the absolute best way to go in urban/suburban gardens. In my most ambitious year I grew a TON of stuff including squash, okra, watermelon, honeydew melon, corn, tomato, herbs, green beans, lettuce... all in a back yard that was pretty tiny, in a garden bed along one length of fence... about 12 ft x 5 ft. That garden was the hardest thing to leave behind in Dallas when we moved here...
