Beautiful garden...The idea with containers is pretty good and it also looks nice - tidy and well organized. This spring I am going to do a little makeover in my garden so I have to try this. I am also going to build or buy a small greenhouse so I can grow there more demanding plants. I see that you have a lot of veggetables - the same as me. Tomatoes, peppers, peas are my "must grow" every year. This year, however, I want to experiment a bit and grow a new pea from called "Blauwschokker" . Have you heard about it? Is is hard to grow it?
