    Yes my entire is in totes or 5 gal buckets. This is the,7th yr of gardening this way. I do add tum tablets once a month. I have 9 tomatoes, 2 cucmbers, 2 kinds lettuce, spinach, radishes, beets, Zuchinni and summer squash, peas, green beans, sweet corn and lots of herbs

  • Yes, they will, Mary. I would give them a small trellis to grow on too!

    Yes. There are bush cucumbers that don't spread or climb. Just make sure you have a large planter and feed them every week. They need to be in full sun.

    My dad always grew them in a half 55 gallon drum LOL!, He had a few holes in the bottom for drainage; and then simply added a couple inches of water a few times a week and let it flow through. Worked great.
