MK's condo has no yard, so we container garden on the patio. Tomatoes, bell peppers, lettuce, green onions, and Swiss chard are a sample of what we've got going. We also have some lemon balm growing so that we get fresh, and refreshing, tea all summer long. But the thing is, container gardening is so easy that I'm surprised that more people I know don't do it. Nothing is more fresh than picking it and taking it straight to the table. Rinse and slice, there you go. And the container takes all, and do mean ALL, of the work out of weeding. Just make sure that the plant is watered, maybe throw in a couple of MiracleGro spikes, and you're set. The plant will most likely thrive and produce.
You can do it! Bring back the Victory garden!
