veggies in container

I attended a workshop on vegetables in container and brought some plants directly from the grower: two tomato plants, bean, basils, egg plant and marigold (to repel insects). We are not really into the container approach but we decided to do it as an experiment.

She recommended putting the tomato (called lollipop, transluscent yellow cherry type), bean (ice wax) and basil together. I put the egg plant (fairy tale) in a separate pot and the other tomato plant (red striped roman) in the ground (thanks goodness we still have a little bit of space left).

The weather has been cold consistently. Mark built a shelter for the sweet basils over the weekend. However, it is just too cold for them. Today, it is 8C.
