Hello my new friends!

Hello my new friends!

I have joined your community in a serious concern for the future of the global food system, blah, blah, blah. I have started a potted vegetable garden. I'm rather new to this whole green-thumb-business, so here is what I have for a start:

A tomato plant. Look! It's blossoming:

The blossoms mean tomatoes are coming, right? The little plant beside it is the beginnings of cucumbers...
I'm also growing a green bean bush which I'm MAD excited about because GOODNESS I love green beans...

I've also planted mint. Doesn't it smell wonderful when the wind blows into the house? I live in a rented duplex, so I couldn't plant in the ground. Have any useful tips about growing these veggies in pots?

I look forward to being part of your community!!
