  • depends on how big your container is really. tomatoes, peppers, herbs are all easy. things like cucumbers and squash is a little trickier. I don't do this, but I see alot of older people do mostly tomatoes and peppers on their patios or porches.

  • My mother plants tomatos, okra, and onions in one plastic container. I would have never thought it would work but it does! If you read gardening by the foot you can grow anything in a small area.
