I’m stuck in gardening limbo again this year. I think I shared with y’all last year that we were planning on trying to move, so I wasn’t sure whether I should plant a full garden or not. I ended up going with the full garden and we didn’t end up moving, so it worked well. This year, we’re pretty sure we’re going to move soon, so I’m going to plan on an all container garden that can move along with us.
I’m going the easy route this year and hitting up my favorite farmer’s market for their annual transplant sale to snag some organic seedlings. If you’re in Kansas City, make sure you stop by on April 18th 4-9pm!
Here’s my tentative plan for this year plus some awesome container gardening inspiration:
I may go with a simple all lettuce container like this
Or a combination lettuce and herb garden like this one
I may do a combination of the salad garden above, a tiered all herb garden like this one
or a hanging herb garden like the one I did last year.
I plan to try a potato barrel this year. I’m going to try a half whiskey barrel or small trash can to avoid it weighing too much to move.
I’ve had success with bush tomatoes in a container before, so these should work well in some of the small containers I have on hand.
Bell peppers and chilies
I’ve never tried these in a container before, but figure they should perform similarly to tomatoes in a container.
