Hi,

But is it possible (and why):
We usually grow vegetables in our garden, but this year we __will not grow____ (not grow) any.
Yes, it's quite possible. I just got tired of listing them all. It's fine if you want to state it more as a fact and less as a plan.

In conversation, you'd say 'We won't grow any'.

Best wishes again, Clive
Thanks again,

I asked you such question because my English teacher said it isn`t correct, and I got bad mark.

How about this one:
I ____ (try) to buy this book for months now.
Is it possible "have trying". And what is the difference between "have trying" and "have been trying".
Hi,

How about this one:
I have been trying__ (try) to buy this book for months now.
Is it possible "have trying". No. And what is the difference between "have trying" and "have been trying". 'Have trying' is not a correct tense!

You mean to say haven't grown is correct
We usually grow vegetables in our garden, but this year we haven't grown any
Yes, that's one of the several possible tenses that I listed earlier.

Cutting EdgeI asked you such question because my English teacher said it isn`t correct, and I got bad mark.
If your teacher told you that "We usually grow vegetables in our garden, but this year we will not grow any" was incorrect, then s/he overlooked the possibility of it being said at the start of the year.
