Thanks for the suggestions!

Kadesma - What is a cloth planter? Is it like a burlap bag?

It's something new it looks almost like a short half barrel..It let's in air, can be moved and reused over and over..I bought it on line. If you would like the name I'll PM it to you.

Spring Fling!

Because of this thread, I decided to plant a few things in pots. I found three large pots at the local hardware. In one, I've put an heirloom beefsteak tomato along with some sweet basil and parsley. I may have to move the herbs as it grows. In another, I got two bush cucumbers and put it in with a few shallots and and some bunching onions. In the third, I put in a cherry tomato with basil again. I'm so excited.

Since the pots looked so pretty, I got super ambitious and placed some shallots and garlic in the ground in several places. And I replanted my dill in a partially shaded area since it was fried in the sun last summer.

Frank is calling me "Farmer Girl." Mind you, I'm the one who describes the Great Outdoors as what I go through to get to the car. And I just landscaped the back forty so that I can manage it with a bottle of round-up and a weed eater.

Several times, I asked myself what I was getting into, but the thought of vine-ripened tomatoes calms my thoughts!

Did I mention that I'm so excited??? I'm downright bouncy.

Growing in pots is a really good way to go if you don't want a "graden". If you want to learn more just Goggle "container gardening". There are also a lot of books on the subject. That is how I got started, and now.. well..I'll post some pics after I get everything planted.

Are you still gardening in pots? And I've hit sooo many container gardening websites. It's almost overwhelming. My biggest challenge is to find what size I need for which kinds of plants.
