Container Vegetable Gardens

'Sweet 100' cherry tomatoes growing in a 15-gallon terra-cotta pot. Container-grown tomatoes are more susceptible to blossom end rot, but cherry tomatoes like 'Sweet 100', 'Sungold', and 'Black Cherry' rarely have this problem. Photo by Steve Masley

5. Tomatoes. Container-grown tomatoes are just as tasty as those grown in garden soil, and they have an added advantage if you live in an area with a tendency to have soil-borne diseases: Plant in containers and start with new soil every year, and you won’t have to worry about rotating your crop. Once you’ve found your ideal tomato-growing location, you can keep growing there year after year.As with other edibles, you’ll need to match tomato size to container size, but err on the side of larger. Even the smallest cherry tomatoes will need a pot or hanging basket that’s at least a foot deep and even wider, and the biggest tomatoes will want a planter as large as possible. Also, while seeing the fruit sprawling over the edges might be ideal in smaller containers and hanging baskets, you’ll probably want to stake the largest indeterminate varieties.See how to grow tomatoes

not lighting.... but would be cool to grow some container herbs + veggies on patio (tomatoes, basil, mint, parsley.. nothing too exotic)

If I put tomatoes in pots, I can winter them in the garage easily.

Love cherry tomatoes, especially my son. This might be doable in our yard this year in a nice over sized pot.
