I read “The Edible Container Garden” by Michael Guerra this past weekend and now I’m really excited. It seems just about anything can be grown in a container. I took a trip up to our roof deck and I think my biggest concern is walking all my heavy supplies up three flights of steep stairs. That should be interesting! But if I take Michael’s advice and buy large, plastic containers, I should be fine. I think my next step will be reading to see what crops make good companions, to make some tentative decisions as to what I want to plant in my fairly limited space. I would love to hear any tips you might have for a first time gardener like myself! This photo is from one week after planting.
