IMHO one category of answers is always wrong: lies. You may oversell
yourself a bit, you can (and should) keep private matters to yourself
but don't lie.

Almost everybody can garden under ideal conditions. I grow about 15
herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, chillies and flowers on a small balcony
in the middle of the city. This year I'm going to harvest at least 200
tomatoes from two plants in a 1m * 40cm * 40cm box of soil. I even have
a calabash plant that grows like crazy. See? :)
