Jeekinz, I live in a townhouse with a small backyard that has maybe 1/2 of topsoil, enough to hold down grass, and that's it. I've been a container gardener for 18 years.
Now I plant pretty much what you do, but I add a six-pack of Ichiban eggplants, herbs, ONE jalapeno plant, and annual flowers for my fence window boxes and hanging pots.
I do start heirloom tomato seeds, plant bean seeds, sunflower seeds and radish seeds (I plant the radishes around the perimeters of my tomato pots, so that I can harvest the rads without disturbing the tomato plants in the middle), but I buy the grape tomatoes and all the other plants. MUCH easier!
My garden is such a lovely and relaxing little place to come home to, especially on those balmy summer evenings!
