Container gardening is an easy way to grow your own food. My daughter helped me plant salad greens and spinach in flower boxes the other day. This will be incredibly handy in a couple weeks to go out on the deck and pick greens for our salads each day.
Here are a just a few reasons you should try gardening in a container.
Container garden is perfect for beginning gardeners. All you need is a container, soil, and seeds. If your intimidated by starting a garden, this could be a great place to start.
You can have a container garden in the smallest of places. Even is you don't have a backyard or any land to till up-you can still grow your own food.
Container gardens are very kid friendly. It's a great way to get the kids involved. It's less messy and in my case safer for my plants if my kids garden in containers. This way they don't go tromping through the garden squishing plants with every step.
Your plants could be less appealing to critters if you grow them in a container. Occasionally I have had problems with moles. Planting in a container would probably solve that issue.
You can plant just about anything in a container. Just remember if you plant anything that burrows into the grounds like radish or carrots-make sure your container is deep enough.
