Today Valerie is sharing a guest post on a topic that I know many of you are going to enjoy: CONTAINER GARDENING! (Sorry for shouting, you know I get excited.) Anyway, so many of you live in apartments, condos, or simply want a garden close to your kitchen. This is where container gardening comes in. Enjoy!
Hi, I’m Valerie and I blog over at Cottage Making Mommy. We live on 10 acres in rural Oklahoma and we love to garden. I’m a city girl who was transplanted to the country when I married my sweetheart and I love living on our farm.
My favorite thing to do out here, besides play with our animals, is to grow our own vegetables, many of which I grow in pots.
Now I grow vegetables in pots, in addition to the ground, because our soil is poor and I also want some up on our deck to have easy access to when I’m cooking.
You can grow vegetables in pots no matter where you live.
The first thing you need to do is pick what you want to grow your vegetables in. I use old flower pots, deck boxes and even some of the containers my plants come in from the nursery. Old cooking pots, feeding tins, coffee cans are all great choices to grow your veggies in.
