    Tomatoes, egg plant, or swiss chard. Just make sure you chose a bigger pot to give your veggie plenty of room.

    I have had good luck with tomatoes, strawberries, peppers, herbs, lettuce. Just make sure that you water and fertilize them, as in pots they are more needy than in the ground. I wouldn't do carrots, green beans or corn as you would not get enough crop out of a pot to be worth it. You can do viney veggies as long as you have a large enough trellis to hold the weight of the fruit. As stated before, use large enough pots to support the roots of the mature plants.
  • Strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, melons, provided they are at least whiskey barrel size planters.

    If you plant tomatoes, get the ones that say "Determinate" on the sticker. These grow to about 3 feet and stop. The "Indeterminate" ones grow all crazy and about 6 feet tall.
