Well, all those lovely pots get expensive, so this year I'm trying $1 Store clothes baskets lined with landscape fabric which I have on hand. Since the house is for sale, I want to be able to move my garden with me. The largest ones are planted with one rhubarb in each. Then the other ones are planted with one cherry tomato or pepper plant in each. I did put 3 midget canteloupe in a basket, which might have been too many, but the package said 3 to a "hill". I use bunny poop as a fertilizer because it can go right into the dirt without aging.
