Containers,where to start?

rlrhino_6bMarch 16, 2009

I've been ghosting the forum for a while and doing some research. The more I research the more questions I have. I have never raised my own garden before.

In your experience what would work better? Totes or homemade plywood boxes? And what size is best for which plants?

I plan on growing the following:


Sweet/hot peppers

Yellow/red onions



sweet corn

Asrtd Herbs

I figured each species would get its own container, minus the herbs which could occupy one box/tote.

If you know of any other online resources or books, please let me know. I would appreciate any comments/suggestions.
