If you don’t have soil or want to commit to a full garden then container gardening a great option. This allows you to customize how much time and resources you want to dedicate towards gardening. Many great vegetables will come to fruition nicely in a pot but they will need around 7 hours of sun light. Having a dolly so you can transport the plants into sunlight makes it easy to get started. Check the plants in the morning and water based on their needs.
