Fall Gardening (in Containers)


Well the garden harvest has come and gone.

I wanted to plow the garden and plant a few things in the space for a fall garden, but time got away from us.

                                               So...

                                                       I improvised!




I planted the cherry tomato plant in this galvanized tub back when I planted the regular garden.

When planted in the garden, it really takes up a lot of precious space, so I tried putting it in a container this year.

It didn't grow humongous or produce tons of tomatoes, but it's still going.


It is starting to look rugged, but...

It is still producing yummy tomatoes.


The blooms prove that it even has more to come...


I planted some late onions in with the tomato plant.


And in an old watering can I planted kale seeds.
(I planted some seeds in other containers also, but they aren't doing so well.)

I love that it is October and we are eating fresh tomatoes and onions.

Hopefully we will be eating kale soon too!

Do you plant a fall garden?

  1. Yes we do. We plant fall garden. And, just like you, we are enjoying fresh tomatoes right now. Also parsley, onions, and basil.

    I plan on planting radishes all winter long. They take only three weeks from planting to maturity and will be giving us real vitamins.

    Chives and garlic planter is on its way.

    Happy planting, Lori.

  3. I love container gardening. We have gardened in containers for quite a few years. This year we did not have a fall garden. Our herbs planted in containers are still doing well though. I hope that you have a wonderful fall weekend. ♥ Teri

  4. Good on ya! Yes, our fall garden is under way. We are growing kale, broccoli, lettuce, carrots, beans, eggplant, leek, tatsoi, and finishing up our sweet potatoes and peanuts. I gave up on tomato growing though. That takes more patience than I have! Enjoy your lovely garden!

  5. Our weather is too unprecictable to risk planting a fall garden - but I keep my plants from the summer going as long as I can, by covering them at night with blankets to protect them from frost.
