Yes, and so sad it's November in Northeast Illinois
I have gardened in Alaska, the high desert, and here. Gardening on my own since 1979, but grew up with big gardens, rows and rows. Started doing boxed raised beds in 1986, and wouldn't do it any other way. You can do succession planting, companion planting, roots and verticals in the same box intensive gardening, cold frames, etc., the possibilities are endless. You don't need much space to have a garden. I am still working on extending the season for my green and leafy veggies, now that I am raw, they are more important to me than ever. I'm so sad.
