We live in a townhouse, so I don't think that we can call anything we plant a garden, but this is about at close as we could get. The management here does all of the landscaping, but they give you an option to be on a "do not plant" list, so that you can plant your own flowers. But since there was nothing in our resident guidebook that said you had to plant flowers, so we planted, tomatoes and cucumbers, peppers, zucchini, parsley, chives and cilantro. No we didn't plant these in July. We planted them at the end of May, right before we left on vacation.Tab had a blast helping Jason and I plant. He is also a very diligent waterer.
It has been funny. He has been obsessed with where our food comes from. So he is very excited to watch the plants grow and produce food. So far we only have one tomato.
