Hi, I'm a 50yr old countryboy who has lived in a small town for the past 3 yrs. I've always had a normal garden untill about 7 or 8 years ago when I began to grow my vegies in containers. I started out with 5 gal. buckets, but now use mostly earthboxes and tubbs used to mix cement in. I also enjoy greenhouse gardening and using lights indoors. I have 2 fig trees and am trying severial banana trees. There is not to much that I wouldn't at least try once. My current garden is on my back deck and comprises 6 tubbs, 26 earthbox or simular type planters, and severial misc. buckets. I am esp interested in trying to grow as many vegies for mu family as I can. I use the Ruth Stout method (a continous mulch system)on all of my containers.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z5 NcntrlPa.
