Check out my container garden experiment!
I know that people are often asking if certain things can be grown in containers and/or what yields to expect. As I was putting together my "wishlist" for this season, I searched high and low for clear, user-friendly answers to things like "if I plant 4 okra plants in a ____ sized container, how many okra would I get?"
Having had little luck in that regard, and understanding that there are several variables at work in yields, I decided to put together a blog chronicling not only my garden, but also the harvest yields for various planting situations (some of which are considered by many to be too crowded).
I invite anyone who is interested in the experiment, as well as a lot of container garden photos and posts, to check out my blog at the link below.
I'm growing 2 types of okra, 7 kinds of tomatoes, 3 kinds of peppers, broccoli, romanesco, tons of herbs, flowers, potatoes, strawberries, cucumbers, beets, lettuce, eggplant, and more!
I post updates regularly, and I would love to share my experiences with others who are interested in container gardening. It is amazing what you can grow in a small space!
Also, please feel free to comment! It's great to chat about gardening with other like-minded people!
