So, I really dislikeSo, I really dislike gardening (well, the weeding part anyway) and our soil is VERY sandy. I thought it would be good to use containers (trying to be frugal). Do I HAVE to use actual pots? Can I use a 5 gallon bucket or a tub of some sort? I think I am going to plant peas, lettuce, green beans and peppers and tomatoes in containers, any recommendations for things to use that are "around the house"? I don't think it will save me any money if I have to buy pots, soil, seeds, etc. This is likely a stupid question, but I am learning!
