Container Gardens for Vegetables
When you can’t dig, plant a container garden!
1. Weeding is easy.
2. You can place the pots in the sunniest location that you have, even if that space isn’t conducive to digging.
3. You can use containers that you already have, or try and rustle up some free ones (just make sure that they are large/deep enough for what you’re growing, and that they haven’t been used for anything toxic).
4. Make sure to cut drainage holes in containers that don’t have them.
The best container gardening book that I’ve read so far is
The Vegetable Gardener’s Container Bible: How to Grow a Bounty of Food in Pots, Tubs, and Other Containers
by Edward Smith. He shows you how to alter common containers for drainage and self-watering, and teaches you how much space you need to grow specific vegetables.
