I'm in the early stages of learning about gardening. I lack a garden - all I have is a fire escape - but by next year, I'd like at least a few containers of something edible/useful out there.
Step one? A little aloe plant that I picked up at the store the other day. Cheaper than a bottle of...

Could someone please let me know which veggies grow best for container gardening? I want to get started soon but have no clue where to start. I don't want to waste my money if a particular veggie doesn't do good in containers. Thanks! :D

DS has his very own container for the herb tutorial. I let him choose his own seeds regardless of if i thought it was a good idea or not, lol, i kept my mouth shut and let him choose.:) He decided on tomatoes, chives, basil, and parsley. we had very old seeds at first that didn't come up, so...

I have been seriously thinking about trying to do some container gardening on my back or front patio. I was born without a green thumb, so I am going to start SLOWLY! I have never kept a plant alive before, so I need some advice.
