Many of you out there like myself live in the city and do not have the areas needed for a garden, not quite. You can successfully grow some vegetables in a small area, heres how. I use 5 gallon paint buckets. I clean them up and remove the label and paint them with Krylon spray paint for plastic. Now they look like planting pots. I simply use a high quality planting mix like organic miracle grow brand and you can either start from seed or go to a nursery and buy starters. I have one plant per container and Im growing peppers and tomatoes, this is my first year and so far so good. I use miracle grow tomato food and just water when the soil starts to dry a couple of inches down. Every day I turn the pots a quarter turn also. Well hope this helps especially with the rising costs of food.
