I've planted my container garden for 2008. I have an heirloom tomato, strawberries, basil, green onion, and red bell pepper. I just love watching the plants grow. The tomato has grown so much already, and the basil has already sent out seeds (which I removed, it's too early for that). The green onion has been recently planted from seed, so I'm hoping it's not too late.
Heirloom Tomato Plant - I don't know why, but I love the way tomato plants smell.
Strawberry plant - I really didn't want to plant strawberries, even though I love strawberries. The plants can get a bit hard to control, but I figured in a pot they won't have much place to go.
Red Bell Pepper (in front), Basil (in back), Green Onion (in ground, you can't see them) - last year I had a the tomato plant in the same pot as basil and green bell pepper. The bell pepper didn't do very well since the tomato plant got so large. So I bought a second pot and hopefully they'll have more room to grow. As for the basil, it's doing awesome and I'll have to find something to do with it quickly.
