Is there a way to make a "portable" garden...one that I could move ?

I'd like to place it in various parts of my property at different times, according to what's going on. I know it'd have to be fairly small to be portable. Suggestions? Thanks.

    The only way you could plant things to move around would be to plant them in flowerpots. The amount of dirt they would need would be too heavy to move around if you have them all in one garden

    Simply use plant pots that you can move around from space to space. If the plant pots are large you can use packing peanuts or empty soda bottles in the base of the pots before adding the dirt to decrease the weight of the planted pot and make it more portable.

    Use a Radio Flyer red wagon. That's what I do each year.

    Use a garden cart and fill it with different containers.

    I used and old wheelbarrow I found at an abandoned mine.....so old the front wheel was made of wood like the old covered wagon wheels....the bed was made from a hammered metal and already had some drain holes....still have it for annual flowers. black plastic watergarden ponds sold at home depot, mount to a 3/4" marine plywood, add large casters to the bottom of the plywood or create axles using threaded rod and u bolts and inflatable lawn mower tires , add a rope around the entire black liner with enough you can step inside....you become the horse...or borrow my two dogue de bordeaux

    another idea is use a childs toy wagon with some drain holes drilled and painted your choice.

    I have a Cocker Spaniel who loves tomatoes. I usually have a few plants on the side of our house. If I don't have her tied she'll go there & help herself to a RIPE one. ..or two. She has never eaten a green one. The small cherry tomatoes are her favorites! As long as she doesn't start asking for seasoning on them!
