Beans

Beans are great growers! Plant some beans in a pot and place a trellis in the middle. Within weeks you should have a nice bean stock. To properly grow beans make sure your pot is at least 12 inches deeps. Plant the beans in an area that receives lots of sunlight and make sure you have a nice trellis for support!Beans fix the nitrogen levels in the soil. Vegetables that require more nitrogen are great to grow with beans. If you’re growing beans in a very large pot you can grow summer savory, kale, and celery in the base.Beans fix the nitrogen levels in the soil.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes require little more than an abundance of sunlight (5 to 6 hours a day). Make sure you have a pot at least 12 inches deep and a stick for support.Plant your tomatoes in your pot and tie the stem to your stick. Water the tomatoes as needed.

 

 

Lettuce

From my own experience, I have to ask. Is it even possible to kill lettuce? Lettuce grows quickly, within a week you can have a full head of lettuce to harvest! To grow lettuce in a pot, choose a wide pot as lettuce likes to fan out. Your lettuce planter can be shallow (at least 6 inches), and have good drainage. Plant each lettuce head 4 to 7 inches apart. Lightly water your soil to keep the soil moist, not wet.

 

Carrots

As carrots grow down, make sure your pot is at least 12 inches deep. When planting carrots I prefer to make rows in the soil about an inch deep and 3 inches apart. I sprinkle seeds in each row and cover them up. A lot of my carrots grow together and come out a bit small, but this is always okay as I just cut and cook them!

Beats

Beats are a fast growing vegetable which do not require a lot of space. A pot which is 6 to 8 inches deep will suffice. Simply make sure your soil is permeable and rich in compost!
