Hello! Today is my first day here and I thought I would introduce myself. :)

I have three fairly large containers on the back porch. They are made from oak wine barrels that have been cut in half. I have mint in one of them, another will hold a cherry tomato when I move the plant from the greenhouse, and the third one has several herbs in it. I planted the herbs about 6 or 7 years ago and the ones that survived are the ones still there. My daughter Fiona knows what they are, but I am not sure except for the chives.

:D:D:D:D Hey Vanessa! Great to see you here! You and I are in the same boat since we both live in apartments. Containers will have to do! I've got a great climate, and I love tropicals, too! I think you'll like it here and find it easy to navigate!!

There are loads of familiar usernames over here, and eventually, you'll get to see more and more!!!!!! We'll have to have a family reunion sometime! Reuniting all of us who are transplants from elsewhere!

Hello Kim, Dale, Randy, Kya_D, Spider_lily, Susan and Jade!! :D

Thank you so much for the warm welcome!! hehe. Your right Susan I do see many familiar usernames!! :) You got a new username though! I like it and is very true. :) I am so excited to see everyone and I feel right at home. I am having fun browsing around the site and seeing/reading everything.

Randy sounds like I need some of those wine barrels for some tomatoes seedlings I got growing. :)

All of the old usuals are here, but they changed their names. It is like coming home after a long time away. I don't know if I can figure our and reassimilate their old names with the new ones, but I will do my best.
Have a good time here, we all are.

THey make great planters, Vanessa. I rigged up a large tomato cage on one of them and it stays on the back porch for grazing. I put a Sun Gold cherry tomato there, but I also have one in the garden itself. They were selling for $20 when I bought the ones I have, now the same store is selling them for $24. I was considering a 4th one on the porch to plant a rosemary bush in, but I checked our herb garden and I have a bush there already.

I've been there. I had two balconies in my apt and I had them full now I have a mix of containers and dirt. I like both. I have a container of mums and a container of mint. there is one other which I put annuals in. I had 4 o'clocks in it last year and it looks like they will reseed, I've had alot of fun with them.

Hi Vanesa welcome to Gardenforums. It is great you found your wasy over here and that you already know so many members. I also have to do container gardening. I sure wish I had a little peice of ground to plant in. I cramed in so much on my patio last year that I only had 1 little spot for me to sit on but I got so many complements from my neighbors. This year I am going to try to expand to the outside of the patio and see if I can get away with it.

Hi Vanessa and Welcome!
I enjoy planting in anything that will hold soil or water! I started out mostly veggies in containers until '05 which is when we recycled someones old wood and made several beds..but...Containers are still a very big passion of mine.I'm guessing I will be seeing you all around here and that rose..........OH MY!
Is it yours!?? or a cutting from a store arrangement ...
I always see them but not in my gardens of roses.
I do have a few "oranges" but...Not like that one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am in love with that rose and cant wait to find out who she is!

Kale :)
