    Pot Planting

    Totally new to this....truth be told I have never grown anything but herbs in the window and once a strawberry pot. So...what can I plant in a few large and medium pots? I was thinking about things that grow down and not out, like carrots and scallions. THe pots would be on a side yard, east facing. Also I'm in area 10 according to one of the seed companies. These pots will not be moved around cause all the rest of the yards are for the dogs.And most of all, I would like very much to have at least one successful crop so I don't give up on it. TIA. icon_smile.gif

    Almost anything you can grow in the ground can be grown in a pot. You would need fairly deep pots for root vegetables such as carrots. If your pots will not be moved as you mentioned, I am assuming they will be in mostly full sun. Water will be your main concern. Pots lose moisture easily so make sure you use pots with drainage holes and then water often. I have to water potted plants almost daily in the hottest month (Jul-Aug) and I am only in Zone 7a. So if your pots will be located in a spot that is close to a water source, you should be fine.
    Also, try tomatoes and peppers ~ a single plant to each pot is best. Cherry and grape tomatoes are fun in a pot. They hardly ever make it into the house before getting picked and eaten icon_biggrin.gif
