this is my first time gardening (besides some basil and aloe vera last year). i did the soda bottle greenhouse method. once the tomatoes seedlings are big enough, i'll pot them and put them on the side of the house. i have tomatoes (roma, brandywine, marvel stripe, and green zebra), chives, sweet basil, rosemerry, alpine strawberries, lavender, fingerling potatoes, thai chiles, purple carrots, and nasturtiums. come june, i'll be watering like crazy (cause everything is potted).
