I plan on growing tomatoes (beefsteak and cherry), cucumbers, peppers, and many types of herbs this year all in a very small space in containers. I have had great success in the past. Because the plants are in containers I do not need to do any weeding. As they are located right in front of my front door (literally right in front) watering is fairly easy.
Nothing beats picking a fresh tomato and eating it right then and there. The ones at the store may look like a tomato but they taste nothing like ones that I have grown myself. I can’t wait for summer to get here so I can make BLTs (bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches). Yum!
