Spring time! Garden ideas

This year we have our house on the market and can't do a garden like we do every year. I was really disappointed because we love having a garden. I just received a Lowes book in the mail today that gave me an idea!

We usually have a traditional small garden. We just plant the basics and have a little fence around it to keep out the animals.(this is not a picture of our garden. I just pulled it off the web.)

But who says we have to do a traditional garden, right! There are so many different ways to grow a garden. Some of you may be in an apartment or don't have much of a yard. You can still grow a garden and save your family money and eat organic veggies!!

This garden you can do if you do have a yard but not great dirt. Raised boxes, fill in your own dirt or compost. There are lots of websites to go to that would assist you in this process but here's one for you if you don't know where to start.

Now if you don't have the room for a garden or you're selling your house and not sure if the new owners will like the idea of digging up the yard here's the garden for you!

Now you can make these in pretty pots or just what ever you have. If you need ideas on how to do this you can go here.
So what is everyone doing this year for a Garden? Any good tips or ideas?!
