This year, I decided to change my usual setup and try growing vegetables in fabric pots. I grew peppers, sweet potato, and tomatoes, and tindora in these pots. So far, it looks like they are growing better in the pots than in the ground.

I've had to water the plants in the fabric pots more regularly compared to growing them in soil to maintain the moisture in the pots. I used a potting soil mix composed of 3 parts potting soil, 1 part cellulite, 1 part perlite so that the soil mix retains moisture better. One of the advantages of growing the pots is that weeds and grass grew sparsely and were easier to remove with the plants elevated above them.

Here are a few pictures of the results so far
