More and more people are turning to fruits and vegetables. What is more exciting is that these individuals are growing these foods at home. Container vegetable gardening is amongst the more popular type. We have answered tons of questions at work on this topic. Again, the most popular topic seems to be vegetable gardening in containers. Is it easy? Can I use any soil? Any type of special processing involved? Lets find out more.
What Can I Grow In Containers?
Surprisingly, the vegetables you can grow in containers include carrots, pumpkin, cucumbers and peas to name a few. To accomplish this correctly, you must give your veggies enough room to grow. Purchase a pot or container large enough to accommodate the size your vegetables. Remember that some of these veggies can become quite large so don’t run out of space.
Any Soil Preparation Involved?
Yes, yes and yes…by the way, did I say yes? Preparing your soil before planting your vegetables will help your plants grow strong and more diseases resistant. Using premium soil that is weed free and with the correct amount of fertilizer can improve your veggies success. This process helps to eliminate any drainage problems and in turn produces healthier plants. Do not over water your vegetables, if you do it can lead to root rot and the death of your plants. I would recommend a soil moisture tester.
Bugs Will Bug You
So your veggies are growing looking delicious but did you know that others are just as eager to bite into your delicious veggies as you are? Yes, those pesky insects will get the jump on you if you don’t take care of them early.
A quick tip, be sure to use pet friendly and earth friendly insect sprays or soaps. You will need to take extra care when spraying around small pets and children. Keep all chemicals up high in a safe place.

http://www.JuicingGardener.com – My veggie garden tour – my first year container garden (part 1 of 2)
In this video, I give you a grand tour of one of my two awesome vegetable and fruit container gardens.
People ask me why I have only container gardens when I have plenty of land to garden out in the ground.
The answer is deer, rabbits, moles, gophers….
So, I have two container gardens. One is up by my house in partial sun. This one is almost all greens which mostly do well in partial sun.
The other (see part 2 of this video) is my pollinating garden which gets full sun. Mostly for tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, watermelon and cantalopes…. oh and some peppers.
This video is my first upper greens garden. Part 2 is my sunny garden. It’s a great garden too, so many sure you watch that video too!
