Even although I have a 'real' veggie garden now, I am also enjoying some container gardening, just because I can. I have three tomato plants right next to each other in such a way that we can walk out onto our deck and pick fresh tomatoes. Will be heaven! One of them is blooming now, so it won't be long before it starts producing.
1. Convenience, since the deck is so close to the kitchen;
2. Efficiency, since there is less weeding to be done;
3. The herb planter just looks good and makes me feel very organized.
