There are many ways to make use of a sunny window, balcony or porch to grow vegetables. Unfortunately, I have only a few small windows. That leaves me with the outdoors. I can grow anything I want here, as long as it's in a container. Over the past few years I have experimented with container gardening and found that things grow amazingly well. This year I will be experimenting with gardening vertically in containers.
Another part to this experiment is to use as much recycled materials as possible. Pots can be expensive and take up a lot of room. See my seed starter pots and soda bottle towers below.
I've also made a drastic change from gardening in the short growing season of New England to the baking heat of Texas. This year will be a learning curve. I did start a few seeds on the counter using my cardboard tube seed starter pots.
I'll be posting updates as things happen. I've been waiting for a few seedlings to start so I could take pictures.
