It is possible, you just have to water, water, water. The results are worth it.
"They" say to opt for one squash plant per household member. There are two of us and one squash plant in the garden, and alas, we still have too much squash. Lots will be going in the freezer for the winter, which is a-ok with us.

Here's a little corner of ivy and rosemary.
I'm rooting a little basil (and creeping jenny) in a jar inside.
I've also started drying some basil for this year since I use it so often in cooking and want tons to last me through winter (click here to see three different ways to preserve basil!).
The little vertical garden I posted about here is coming along nicely.
And of course, I planted lots of zinnias. I love my white ones particularly.
Anything lovely growing in your backyard this summer?
