10 Foolproof Vegetables for Container Gardening

My wife has entertained the idea of growing some vegetables this year.  I've always pictured growing vegetables in a garden, but we don't have a great spot in our yard to maintain one.  Just recently, we've made mention of growing vegetables in containers, so naturally, I thought this article was not only worth a read, but worth sharing with everyone!

Does anyone out there have experience with this?  What vegetables do you grow?

Take care,

How Buyers Search for Homes

The video below is from Keller Williams Realty International and it explains why it is so important to price your home right when you put it on the market.  The video speaks from the angle of considering how buyers search for homes, and shows how pricing incorrectly could eliminate your home from consideration without ever having a buyer step foot inside.


If this video got you thinking about buying or selling real estate, I'd be happy to answer any questions or concerns that came to mind.  Please contact me via text, call, or email at any time... I'll look forward to being your Realtor!
