  • Growing Vegetables in Containers

    http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/e...container.html

    If your vegetable gardening is limited by insufficient space or an unsuitable area, consider the possibility of raising fresh, nutritious, homegrown vegetables in containers. A window sill, a patio, a balcony or a doorstep will provide sufficient space for a productive mini-garden. Problems with soil-borne diseases, nematodes or poor soil conditions can be easily overcome by switching to a container garden.

    Here is a pic of my container tomatoes on my deck.

      LOL, you are funny! Yep, from Walmart. I usually shop at the Dollar General but happened to be in Walmart on the day I needed some pots.

        Here is an updated pic of my container tomatoes. :) Today, I am constructing a mobile staking contraption instead of using my temporary stakes.

          I haven't got'n to it yet...maybe tomorrow....I have 2, 10' sections of vinyl rain gutters with end caps....drilled full of drain holes.... and hangars to attach to my deck. I enjoy the cherry/grape (size, not flavor) tomatoes and will plant lots of them...their vines will grow up and over the railings.
          O.W.
          Things are seldom what they seem.
