I find the idea of vegetable hanging from baskets just fascinating. What a cheery way to fill vertical garden space.
Grab a cup of coffee and join me.

Vegetables for Hanging Baskets
After the plant name is the variety, followed by the number of plants the holding basket can contain. There is no diameter mentioned on the chart, so I would guess the most common size available…maybe 10″or 12″
- Blue Lake — 3 or 4
- Patio Pik — 1 or 2
Peas, Sugar or Snow
- Snow Bird — 4 to 8
- Dwarf Gray Sugar — 4 to 8
- Oregon Sugarpod — 4 or 8
- New Zealand — 3 or 4
- Melody Hybrid — 4 to 6
Nope, that’s not a mistake the smaller basket does get more spinach than the larger. Different variety, you see.
Well, by now, you really have some growing options. I think.
I’ll be back with all the great stuff you can plant in 3.5 or 5 gallon buckets, bushel basket and tubs.
Dig in and join the adventure of providing for yourself, even in a small space.
