So, I picked up a mini pot of basil off target's $1 rack, and that's growing surprinsingly well. Taking a look over what Walmart had I saw a kit similar to this : http://www.buzzyseeds.com/store/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=209 bu it had cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and sweet peppers. I almost got it becuase I can use the tomatoes and pppers, but I was hesitant. Would either plants grow well in a metal tub liek that? I talked it over with my BF, and he agrees we should have more plants in the house, and grwing herbs and veggies is better then flowers or ivy since we can use them. I;m jsut not sure how to get started since we have limited space. A little tub like that would fit wonderfully in our kitchen window, but i;m thinking back to my old neighbors that had tomato and peppers that jsut grew into huge bushes. We don't eat veggies often, becuase we both liek differant things. He's not a fan of tomatoes, peppers, onions...he will eat anything cooked with them, and take a bite or two of the veggie, but that's about it. I;m allergic to spinich and peppers with high concentrations of capasim (Jalepenos are the hottest I can eat and I still get a mild reaction.) We love Carrots and cucumbers, but I don't think those would grow well in the limit space we have.
