container gardening success

angel47630October 14, 2007

In case anyone has wondered about dabbling in container gardening I wanted to let you guys know we had wonderful success this year, better than the 12 years we had with our in ground gardening!

We had roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, banana peppers and green peppers along with a huge herb garden. I could not believe the amount of produce we got, not to mention the size and healthiness of them all.

We used HUGE pots and started with the miracle grow vegetable soil, but other than that just regular watering, lots of sun and I found it to be so much easier because there is no weeding or dragging out a hose for 25 feet with a patio garden.

Anyhoo, in case anyone wanted to give it a shot, it really does work well.

That was my husbands one hang up about moving to an apt, he loves to garden, he was amazed at the ease and the success he had and really enjoyed not having to spend his weekend weeding.

Best of luck to everyone
