Try growing some lettuce and herbs in a gallon-size pot of container. Grow tomatoes, peppers or string beans in a 5-gallon pot or bucket. Be sure the containers has holes in the bottom and 1/4 inch up the sides. Use a good potting mix and add some plant food (fertilizer) according to the directions on the package. Set the pot in a sunny spot and water regularly because container pots will dry out more quickly. See www.ag.ndsu.edu/fieldtofork for more information about growing vegetables.
