The Container Garden, By Request

These are the many pots sitting on our patio. There are tomatoes, broccoli, summer squash, peas and on the lower right Japanese Maple trees.

Cucumbers and peppers. The double bucket is an experiment of potatoes.

It’s sort of a mixed bag of how things are doing. The potatoes are looking fantastic. They grow taller every day and The Husband has had to add dirt frequently. The tomatoes are doing well and have their first flowers. At the other end of the spectrum we have the peppers and cucumbers which are doing horribly. The Husband keeps putting in new seeds but they aren’t doing very well.

    Is this a common way to start such a garden? It seems helpful.

    The peppers just want heat. Ours never seem to grow until we are consistently in the upper 80’s. Things are looking great!

  4. Your tomatoes look great! I’ll be interested in how the potatoes do with that system.

    Wish I had an area that got enough sunlight to grow :(. My balcony gets a little sun in the afternoon but not enough, I tried a few years ago, nope didn’t produce anything 😦
