    One major problem you fail to discuss, is in a container, you have extream temperature
    fluctuation that effects the plant roots, in the ground you have a temperature coefficient that is
    stable with in a? couple of degrees, and that makes a big difference..

    We live on 9 acres and have all of our veggies planted? in containers – tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, squash, cucumber, bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, beets, potatoes, okra, beans, peas and herbs. Nothing to till, less weeds to pull and more control over watering.
