Image by mccmicb via FlickrI like vegetable gardening but it is a little difficult to do in my apartment. My wife has forbidden me from having any type of plant material inside our apartment because my son and her both have asthma. I have tried container gardening on our back porch but with mixed results. I tried to raise a Carmine bush cherry in a container over winter and I am praying it survives. Your prayers would also be welcome since my skill and resources are limited. I find it amazing that something as insignificant as a plant can give a person joy when it is successful and can cause great distress when it dies.
