Garden Month wrapped up last weekend, but that doesn't mean that gardening is over - we're just getting going on ours. We still have a couple reader gardens to show you today. We loved this email from reader Kari, who is doing quite well in a small space. She says:

Do you need a huge yard to have your own garden? No! I started small and am already excited about the results.
Read on for more photos of her "mano caliente" garden...

The photos at the top of the post are of Kari's baby heirloom tomatoes and small tomato plants. Above, top to bottom are: a lemon tree, salad greens in a pot, herbs and more herbs.

More from Kari:

I have included some pictures from my patio garden. From lettuce to tomatoes all my organic veggies are looking great don't you think? I have a wide variety of herbs as well. Parsley, rosemary, basil, sage, and mint looking delicious ready to eat. I purchased the small starter plants from the local farmer's market and used compost from my compost pile as well as organic soil the fill the pots. My son's sitter speaks Spanish and told me today that I have "mano caliente", or "hot hands", the spanish version on having a "green thumb".

Thank you Kari!
