Hi Stephen. This site is dedicated to reducing our use of plastic, not increasing it. We are looking for plastic-free, less toxic ways of gardening.

In our family we try to patio garden as much as possible. I would love to read ideas that everyone has for any gardening and patio garden ideas, shared. Remember, the more we grow our own food, the less we struggle with the packaging and bagging to bring home from the grocery store.

In pots, wooden boxes we grow spinach, beans, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, beets, potatoes, carrots, onions, leeks, zucchini, other squash, melons, dill, herbs, and our patio yard is 10′ x 20′. Yes, we still have plenty of walk and enjoy area in the yard.The other side of the fence are two 2′ x 6′ ground flower/vegetable gardens, there we grow more of what is on the above list.

Climbing beans and any bean will grow all over the fence and the blooms are a beautiful orange/melon or yellow color, depending on the type of bean. Stakes in pots allow beans to travel upwards as a stand alone in the pot. Cucumbers grow climbing upwards on stakes grabbing and holding with their curly spindles, same as beans. Green onions grow well in drained pots that drain (or any pot) and in the full sun. We mix our vegetables along with the herbs and other ornamental flowering plants in the ground garden. Potatoes and other veggies do well in pots and it is another good way to reuse your compost.

This saves trips to the store and it is so nice to not need packages or bags for bringing in the salad or lunch.
