I have two wading pool gardens at my apartment building that are mine. The building started this type of gardening so we would have a chance for fresh produce that we can raise organic. So far everything I planted looks great. I have 2 kinds of lettuce, 2 kinds of onions, spinach, basil, green pepper plant, 2 kinds of tomatoes and green beans. We have been doing this for 3 years and each year have gotten lots of produce. Good luck with your container garden! Lucinda
I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

Good for you! I am glad that you can at least have the opportunity to grow in pots and yes, I did notice that Burpee Co. put that on their seeds this year. I will be passing that on to my June Buddy because that is her only option as well. I seem to be involved in gardening almost every hour of every day these days...working in the garden dept. at Ace Hardware and whipping this place into shape....raining today so will get a reprieve for a day or two.

This year Burpee has printed an appropriate to grow in pots symbol. Since I can only grow things in pots, this has been helpful, although I still got a type of tomato that doesn't have the symbol and I know I can grow it in a pot.
I'm hoping to look into more varieties of plants next year for my balcony now that I can figure out what things are easier to grow in pots. Obviously I can't do pumpkins any time soon, but I like that there are varieties of things like cucumbers and beans I can grow in a pot.
I find this is helpful for people like me that have no option to grow anything directly in the land. I have to grow things in pots because I live in an apartment. I have a south facing balcony, so I have the best spot for growing. If I were on the other side of the building, I would have no chance of growing anything. Apartment growing can happen though!
An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.
