Since we can no longer use this garden space, I got creative and Tom and I built these great standing container gardens using a plastic cement mixing bin. We drilled holes in the bottom of the plastic for drainage, filled it with a layer of pea gravel and then the rest got filled up with good potting soil.
My son-in-law Stephen built me this shorter version. This became my pea garden. I added a trellis. We then made a double one that stood a bit higher....great for my bad knees....and this became the garden bed for lettuce, beans, and carrots.
My tomatoes, zuccinni, peppers, and cucumbers got their own space in individual containers.
Now the garden is starting to produce some wonderful vegetables.........
