We’ve had a very mild winter here in Northeast Pennsylvania, but even so I’m ready for Spring! Spring means it’s time to start working in the garden again, which is one of my favorite things to do. Unfortunately, my yard is rocky and does not have the best soil for growing vegetables, but I still love having vegetable plants growing right outside of my kitchen door. Luckily for me, I found out about container gardening vegetables several years ago and I’ve had great success with it that I now use containers exclusively to grow vegetables every year.
Aside from vegetables, herbs are easy to grow in containers too. Many people like to keep herb gardens so they have fresh herbs on hand for cooking or even for making different tea.s Considering how much food costs these days, it really does make sense to grow as much as you can at home. Plus, when you grow your own fruits, vegetables, and herbs, you have complete control over whether or not you use pesticides.
If you have enough space for a few containers, then you really should give container vegetable gardening a try. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is and, you’ll love being able to step outside and pick your own vegetables any time you want!
