I spent this afternoon converting half of one side of my porch into a little vegetable garden. I have no idea whether it’s going to work, but in theory, here’s what I have (or will have):
- 6 “Brandywine” tomato plants (an heirloom variety)
- 6 “Mountain Pride” tomato plants (This is a modern hybrid variety, bought by accident when I meant to buy another hybrid. That said, they may work better, for all I know.)
- 6 kale plants
- 4 bell pepper plants — 2 yellow, 2 orange (growing upwards from the hanging buckets)
- 2 mustard green plants
- 3 spinach plants
As I said, I have no idea whether it’s going to work out. If I had actual space to use as a garden, I wouldn’t pack everything in as tightly as I have it here, and there is a real question as to whether the soil can hold sufficient nutrients to actually grow all of this.
