EAT YOUR VEGGIES

on May 18, 2011

So maybe you don’t have a yard big enough to plant a garden in and you aren’t interested in building your own greenhouse. Last year we tried some of those hanging thingies with tomatoes and peppers. The peppers did okay, but the tomatoes were a disaster. And getting the plants into them was challenging to say the least. Without a doubt, I have to have at least tomatoes and peppers.  

I love those Santa Fe Hot Peppers…

As you can see this one is in a container, and that means you could grow one along with other veggies in a window box vegetable garden.


Other plants that work really well in a box outside your window are lettuce, radishes, beets, tomatoes, oregano and thyme. Avoid corn and cucumbers for this adventure. 

If you want to see window gardening at its best check out a real sky-farming event in London.

And don’t forget to eat your veggies!
