There’s very little sun in our garden, but the side of the house is bathed in sunshine for a good part of the day. so for the last few years I’ve been growing veg in pots. Now, don’t laugh, I know it looks like a right old jumble that could give Steptoe and Son a run for their money, but based on previous years, it seems to work.
The compost is home made, and in the pots I have runner beans, cucumber, yellow courgettes, sweet peas and tomatoes. Time will tell how they do. I don’t have a greenhouse, so the beans, sweet peas and courgettes are sown direct, the tomato was donated by my sister and the cucumber bought at a church fair as a small plant. Never grown a cucumber, so anyone’s guess what will happen. Runner beans have always been a great success grown this way and I love it when I can pop outside the kitchen door and harvest them any day of the week in late summer.
Anyone else using pots for veg?
