Garden Containers

I've been searching around for garden containers to put my garden in. I was hoping to get some on clearance but haven't had much luck.The garden containers I want have to be big enough that the plants can grow in them but small enough not to take up too much room. I have found a couple in boxes here at home that will work for some of it. I have a couple of hanging baskets that will work for cherry tomatoes or there plants that are small or will hang and a medium size pot that will work for some peppers or other compact plant. I'll make my final selection when I finish gathering all the garden containers that I want to use. If I find one or two large enough I might try planting several groups of different vegetables together that go in the same recipe (like salsa or a salad). I might even try my hand at making a youtube video. Wouldn't that be fun?

Getting Started

I moved to New York in July. My new home has a very small backyard barely enough room for the kids and Cricket the dog to run around. Once my hubby puts the playground together there will be even less room. Since we are renting there is only so much I can do to the backyard and I want to have fresh veggies for my family. Since I have no room I'm going to give a vegetable container garden a try.

Why am I starting now when winter is just around the corner?

Well now is probable the best time to get outdoor containers cheap. At least I hope! Tomorrow when I'm out shopping I will take a look around to see what is available. I'm also going to hit the library to do some research on vegetable container garden s. I love the library!
