I have a black thumb. I don’t garden. I’ve never had much of an interest in gardening. But thinking about the impending farmer’s market season, and seeing some people online who are starting to reap a harvest from their gardens is actually giving me a bit of an itch to try planting a few crops myself.
I really can’t see myself working a plot of land in the back yard – I still don’t have a heck of a lot of interest in the process of gardening – but I am starting to see the appeal of growing my own food. So, garden gurus, I need your help, and here’s the big question: Can you grow fruits or vegetables in containers, or do they have to be planted in the ground?
Carrots, berries, peppers, onions – do these lend themselves at all to container gardening? I’m so much less intimidated by a few plants in pots than I am by a full-fledged, grown-up GARDEN. And beyond that, is there anything I could plant now, or is it too late in the season?
Help clueless little me 😀
