Grow a Nutritious Garden in a Pot
Add a bit of nutrition to your diet and landscape. Grow a container full of nutritious vegetables for your patio, deck or balcony.
Try using peppers, eggplants or tomatoes for a vertical accent. All are nutritious and suited for container gardens. Use patio tomatoes or provide a decorative support for taller tomato plants. And, try growing cucumbers, peas or beans up a decorative trellis for a nutritional vertical accent for your pot. Or, how about a plant or two of corn – just for fun!
So be creative and look for small-scale attractive vegetables suited for containers and high in nutritional value.
A bit more information: Continually harvest the outer leaves of lettuce and other greens to keep the plants producing and your planters looking good. Plant a second crop of radishes, carrots and beets once the first planting is harvested. Consider a summer planting for fall harvest. Include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and kale transplants. Seed some fast maturing vegetables like carrots, radishes, beets and greens around and between these bigger vegetables.
