So far we've planted peas, carrots, onions and cabbage. We use the tallest plants in the center and graduating the heights finishing with lettuce around the outside edges.
We add the fairy garden bits to keep "critters" from digging up the pots once we've got everything in.
It also makes everyone laugh and the garden more fun to be in.
There's so much heavy shade in my yard that keeping the plants mobile is the only way to make sure that they'll get enough sun each day.
In these pots we've got lots of strawberries, chives,lily of the valley, violets and lillies as well as hosta and a few other things. Most of it has just been moved from other parts of the yard and the pots had been given to me so you just have to feel good about a project like that.
