In Response to Re: SEED CATALOGS:
I have grown herbs in containers with great success,oregano,basil and rosemary.I've tried tomatoes they didn't do very well. This year since we will moving into an apartment it will have to be container gardening.We'll be on the 4th floor with a large balcony so I can really fix that up nice.I'm thinking about putting up a small container pond using half a barrel lined with a plasic pond liner and a pump.I used to have a pond and I really miss having it.I'll get a few small goldfish and a water lily.When I had my pond the fish stayed in there all year but this being a small "pond" they will have to be wintered inside.I'm not sure how much sun we'll be getting on the balcony so I'll have to wait and see what types of plants I can have.

Gale, sounds like you're going to be having some fun! I've never had a pond but it sounds nice when a store has one going.
