City Pickers on sale at Home Depot

We bought two of these last year for $20 each, which is the current sale price. For first time gardeners like we were last year, they're awesome. Going to pick up one more. We grew greens in one for about two months (kale, arugula, and romaine) until they bolted in the heat around early June, at which point we swapped those out for cucumbers which grew like crazy! In the other city picker, we planted two heirloom tomato plants (wouldn't suggest planting more than two tomatoes per city picker, as they get big!). One of the heirloom tomatoes - Brandywine - didn't produce much, but the black cherry tomatoes had a ton of fruit on them until late August or early September. 

We used Black Gold organic soil (don't buy any random soil, as it needs to contain sufficient peat moss so that the water can wick up), Espoma garden organic dolomite (lime), and Dr. Earth organic tomato fertilizer. The latter can be found at Home Depot, but the first two were only sold at a local nursery. I think that's all we bought, but I may be missing something.

These are great for people who are new to gardening, as it requires very little effort, and they're nice for people with limited space who may not be able to build a raised bed. They're also self watering and it's very hard to overwater, which is probably the biggest plus.

The two had a child, known as City Pickers. Duh.
