container gardening

One of my New Year's resolutions is to learn how to grow some of my own food. This summer we bought a lime tree and fully expected to kill it, but we not only kept it alive, we got a ton of fruit! This gave me the confidence to start my own little mini garden on our balcony and in our kitchen. I plan to put Charlie to work to make these mason jar herb containers asap. We don't have much extra space inside, so I feel like this is a good solution that won't take up space, and it will keep them high enough that our curious pup can't mess with them.
I plan to add a lemon tree,
and if I can find one, an orange tree to our balcony.
I'm also going to try my hand at vegetables and grow zucchini, peppers, and garlic in a container garden. These are on my grocery list every time I visit the store, so I thought it would make the most sense to start with these.
Wish me luck!
