I finally finished planting my container garden for the season.  We don’t have a great place to put veggies in the ground, so I choose to fill our side porch with containers.  This is going to be trial and error to see what works.

I have had success with cherry tomatoes in containers in the past, but everything else is expanding my gardening repertoire.

Here is the list of what I planted…

1. Patio Tomatoes, with Basil tucked in the sides. Cherry tomatoes have their own pots as well.

2. Zucchinni…I just love making this into bread!

3. Lettuce, need some salad mix to go with my tomatoes.  4.  String beans too!

5. Lastly, we planted strawberries in our one spot of lawn my husband let me tear up.  I’m really hopeful that my daughter can help me pick some red juicy strawberries soon.

If you only have a small space for growing vegetables, I think you will find this book helpful:

Happy Planting!
