you can grow just about everything in a 5 gallon bucket on a deck or porch. you'll need at least a half day of sun, but all day is better. the trick is getting the soil right, high nitrogen i think for peas and beans. the other tricky thing about container gardening is getting the moisture right. too dry no good, too wet and the roots will rot.

sugar snaps in the spring, peppers in the summer. peas do not tolerate heat well, peppers need heat.

Cool.... I just planted crocuses & daffodils today. I hope the planters are big enough that the bulbs don't freeze. =)

One of my favorite preparations of beets is to take a can, drain and rinse, then toss into the leftover pickle vinegar. Yummm . Preferable a dill/sour pickle for me, because beets are very sweet. Most prefer sweet preps, though.

Of course, you're supposed to eat them by tourtiere on Christmas eve!

Cabbage, broccoli, and lettuce. In that order.

I like to steam broccoli, cabbage, or brussel sprouts. Then I sprinkle them with sensational garlic and herbs from the Oregon Flavor Shack. The best thing is that it is salt free.

My latest pash is those low-carb "fauxtatoes" -- overcooked cauliflower finely mashed with cream cheese and butter. WOW, are they good!

Then it's potatoes and, yes, broccoli. Does that make me a minority of one?
