I figured for those who growing their garden they would like to know which vegetables do well in container and pots so I will tell you which ones are perfect .

Vegetables

1. Salad Leaves
I love to grow a lot of salad, salad leaves are easy to grow and produce a lot of leaves.They grow well in small grow spaces  if you use fine and shallow trays or  pots they will grow a lot of leaves.You  do not need to feed them all they need to grow is compost and water.When ready clip the leaves when need and they will grow again Just think of all the money you will save from buying salad leaves at the store and  how much healthier this will be fore you.














2.Radishes
These guys grow easily in a pot and do not take up to much space  .I love to use radishes  in my salad and for those of you whose kids don't like radishes try using them in salsa .













3. Carrot's
To grow carrots it can take a while to mature  you will need a deep pot baby spinach and carrots thrive growing in pots.Carrots use less depth of compost be careful of  carrot fly's they can kill your plant cover with fleece are surrounded them by other plants.


















4.Snap Peas, Snow Peas,or Beans in a pot
Planting all these will require a runner these guys need a deep tub and require a lot of nutrient and compost keep well watered. I like using the tops turvys fore beans less maintenance.

Cucumbers are perfect for all types of things cucumbers need a lot of room to grow try using a vertical pot for these.

Tomatoes have lots of variety's that will thrive in pots you will need to make sure they have a lot of nutrients.
