We rent and have big tubs as the soil at this house is rubbish! Literally. Full of building rubble and the first lot we planted in the garden all died!
But we have herbs (parsley, mint, rosemary and oregano), carrots, sugar snap peas, strawberries, rockmelon, sweet potato, garlic and spring onions. We did have cauli and broccoli, but they took all the space and are cheap at the markets
