My goal at the end of last summer was to try and grow as much produce as I can from my small yard. My main veg garden is in our front yard but we have one very sunny spot in the backyard with soil that is very compacted and full of roots. I decided to move some of the pots I normally would have flowers in and plant some veggies. Did some research and found folks that had some real luck with the sugar baby watermelons grown in pots. I am trying it out. I have the room to let them ramble in the planter but they needed some good soil so the pot will do for that. We also planted spinach and Swiss chard in the pots.
A few flowers in the front will help pretty meet practicality.
My pots normally by the fire pit will hold herbs now instead of flowers.
Still working. So in my small city yard we will grow tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, kale, Swiss chard, water melon, spinach, lettuce, cilantro, celery, bok choy and lots of herbs.
