Hanging Vegetable Gardens

We are going to take your veggie growing to another level with this fun little project. Donna from Black Gold showed us how you can plant your spring and early summer vegetables in containers including a hanging basket! Donna picked a couple of varieties of lettuce and some peas.


She also used the Black Gold All Organic soil for healthy veggies! Planting in containers helps accomplish a couple of things. First it is easier to control their growth. They are closer to your door so you remember to water and weed them. Second, you get the benefit of bringing the harvest to your doorstep. The hanging basket was only one way of doing this. You can always use a regular decorative pot or even a basket on your patio railing. For more ideas, check with your local independent garden center or stop and see Black Gold at Gardenpalooza.
