Our first container garden is still producing super goodies:
Here’s our garden:
Detail to show that everything is grown in containers – just cheap plastic tubs from the dollar store. But they have worked out great. It was amazing to see how well everything grew, much better than I’ve ever seen in regular, in-the-ground, hard work gardens.
We put the garden by our front porch, by the carport so it was easy to remember to water in the morning before we left for work, and quick to harvest on the way into the house. We’ll definitely continue our new garden next year, probably expanding it a bit. Eventually, we will be able to grow all our vegetable needs out of little buckets!
I highly recommend this as a family project. Let each kid have their own container to be responsible for and let the whole family reap the rewards!
