Vince bought these stacking/connecting pots at Aldi. You can read more about them here. I suppose they’re kinda cool and might be pretty for flowers that hang over the sides a bit but for anything growing upright, if you stack them, you’re blocking a good bit of your growing space . . or that’s how I see it.
For lettuce and chard, I don’t need a lot of root space and didn’t want to waste garden soil so I filled the pots about 1/3 up with rocks.
The one on the left has lettuce and the one on the right has perpetual spinach/chard. We grow that chard in the keyhole garden in Texas a couple of years ago and it produced like crazy. We’ll see how it does in the small pots. I had the seeds so there was no reason not to try it.
We’ll keep it out when the weather is good and bring it all in on cold days/nights and see what happens.
