Better than no garden and I almost believe you just might find room for one or two other plants. Basil and bell peppers are good companion plants for tomatoes, all in one pot and both go well in sause.renabeth said:So we're off, one tomato and one jalapeno, What a garden!! :haha:
It happens to the best of us! It's hard to pass up a good deal. :haha:renabeth said:Umm, Yes I could see where it could be addictive. When we got to the nursery it was cheaper to buy 4/.75 vs. 1/1.00. And I also bought jalapenos (4) so my ONE plant has alread turned to EIGHT!
You can check out "Square Foot Gardening" which gives you good guidelines as to how many plants you can get in a square foot and keep a continual garden going. http://www.squarefootgardening.com/renabeth said:Ooops. Now I am scrambling to find containers for all of them. Do you know how big of containers I am going to need? They have to be scavanged..
I found organic cow manure (which probably isn't organic) for $1.59 for 40# which was about the cheapest in my area. You did better pricewise than I did on the soil. I feel fortunate that shopping is close for me and I didn't have to spend that much on gas.renabeth said:Also I bought the cheapest potting soil for 3.00 for 80#. Was that a mistake? Anyway I have $4.50 in my container garden so far, barring gas which probably puts the price closer to $10.00. .
