Fresh Food At Your Fingertips
By Joene Hendry
Keen on growing edibles but lacking traditional garden space? Join the growing container-gardening trend.
Edibles grow well in containers from 10- to 20-inches in diameter exposed to at least 6 hours of sun a day.
Smaller containers suit salad greens (direct sown seeds or purchased transplants).
Sow bush bean seeds; young pepper, Swiss chard, kale or strawberry plants; or bred-for-container tomato or eggplant starter plants in mid-size pots.
Use larger pots to sow summer squash seeds or, when outfitted with tomato cages or bamboo-pole teepee supports, to grow full-sized or cherry tomato transplants or seeds of cucumbers or pole beans.
