We've had really good results using containers to grow our vegetable plants in, so that's what we did again this summer.
Squash is a summer favorite in our family, so we have several containers planted with different squash We plant several containers because we have lots of family that we share with.
H picked squash for our lunch today from this plant that's in a vintage garden cart.
We have tomato plants in containers around the yard, and also some in the greenhouse. If we get a bad hail storm that ruins our outdoor tomato plants, we still have the greenhouse plants to enjoy the rest of the summer.
H has a squash plant in the old washing machine. He has tomato plants, bell pepper and chili pepper plants in containers too.
The area behind the white wrought iron fence in the background of this photo is where we used to have our vegetable garden That area is full of wild flowers now but H has the tiller out and we are going to repurpose it .
