    Oh my goodness… You’ve got the most beautiful gardens.. Thank you so much for all the advice and encouragement. I’m a desert city dweller and containers are a lifesaver as far as watering goes. If I might ask, do people have success with grow bags ? 💜🌱💜

    Believe it or not I am growing corn in a 20 lbs grow bag. I put about six plants in each bag. So far the corn is three feet tall. Dark green and lots of broad leaves. I can’t wait until harvest. I want to see if I was successful.

    I grew two varieties of eggplant in Dollar Tree mop buckets in cow manure and compost last year.

  46. MZ on October 31, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    Hello! I have a couple questions about this option. I own a fairly large back yard, but I’m new to gardening and don’t want to install large garden beds until im confident in my skills. I have a few large flower pots that currently are not in use. Can I use them to start small? If so, what kind of soil do use in the pots and where do I find it? Lastly, should I drill holes in the pots for drainage? The pots are circular in shape and about 2.5 feet tall. Anything else you recommend to get me started? Thanks!

  47. paula deitch on October 31, 2022 at 9:39 pm
