Container Gardening Season 2 – Week 3: Seedlings & Sprouts!

This week we finally see some life from our seeds and embark on a few new experiments, including growing our own sprouts. Also, thanks to buying a box of Triscuits we got some free dill seeds to plant. This is our second year attempting to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs in containers on our patio in the city. Each week we update with what’s new, good or bad, in our patio garden. This year we are growing: Basil Cherry Tomatoes Cilantro Dill Green Onions Eggplants Habanero Peppers Jalapeno Peppers Oregano Lettuce Spinach Strawberries and a random heirloom tomato plant given to us as a gift Theme music by DoKashiteru – bit.ly

Container Gardening Season 1 – Week 5: Transplanting Mania

This week we transplanted the tomatoes and peppers into bigger pots and split up some of our crowded, wilting cucumbers. We also transplanted some of the cucumbers into milk jugs and found a creative way to create a stand for our green bean pots. Check out Tiffany’s post on her blog: thrifty20something.com Here is a list of everything we’re growing (or trying to grow): – Cherry Tomatoes – Zucchini – Squash – Green Onions – Basil – Peppers – Lettuce – Green Beans – Cucumbers – Pumpkin (I know, I’m skeptical too)

Container Vegetable Garden Beginning

In this project, we use vegetables in containers to make the most of the few, full sun, areas we have in the garden — chasing the sun, as it were. We found the large pots at a yard sale just 2 houses away. The original marked price was each. We got them for each. I used some re-purposed flagstones as a stable base for each pot and picked up some soil at the gardening center, having run out of my own homemade potting soil. The total time required to put these 3 pots together, including the time required for taking the video and cut, was only about an hour. A small investment for such a large vegetable planting. You can see me planting up some of our seedlings. but we will also plant some seeds in these pots.
