container gardening

Terry got an early start on our container garden this year. She bought tomatoes and peppers several weeks ago, and we got some squash seedlings and Swiss chard the Saturday before last at the annual Gilroy Demonstration garden plant sale.

So now Terry is working on:

  • celebrity and big beef tomatoes
  • relleno, Anaheim, and bell peppers
  • zucchini and crookneck squash
  • pole beans
  • blueberries
  • Swiss chard

and our perennial green onions.

Since it’s all in containers we should be able to maintain our crops while still reducing our water usage in the midst of the drought.

We’re looking forward to lots of home-grown veggies this summer.
