Some veggies and fruits grow well in a container like spinach, onions, and strawberries. However, growing larger vegetables like tomatoes and peppers in a container never turns out that great. They'll produce some vegetables for the table, but they aren't as productive as they would be if they were planted in the ground. When you factor in the expense of buying containers, buying soil and replacing it year after year, and paying the water bill since container veggies need watered more often, I don't see how it's an economical option. What am I missing?
