Hi,

I'm disabled and have 5 screws and a metal plate in my left ankle. I also have severe arthritis.

I would like to grow tomatoes and bell peppers in containers this summer.

What works really well?

I have seen those Earthboxes advertised. Do they work that well?

Thanks so very much. [grin]

Have you thought about growing upside-down hanging tomato plants? I tried but could not finish since I had to move, but it looked like they were going to be great! I hear the tomatoes turn out wonderfully, they're easy, and you can even grow herbs on the top.

Maybe you could hag them right at a comfortable level or something?

With my luck I'd get drenched when I watered them or all the dirt/soil would fall out on me. LOL.

I had to pay over $1.00 each for red bell peppers last summer when I wanted to make hot pepper jelly.

I make jams,jellies,chutneys, etc., plus I have a tiny freezer so I won't mind having lots of tomatoes.

I got started making chutneys because I am allergic to raspberries including raspberry vinegar.
