I don't have beds, which I would LOVE, but since we're not staying in this house I'm just not going to spend the time and money to put them in, so I'm stuck with pots. And I have absolutely no idea when/how to plant stuff in pots in a tropical climate. I tried tomatoes last year and they got wrecked in a summer thunder storm.
I can put plants either east facing, which gets the morning (cooler) sun, or west facing, which gets the afternoon (warmer) sun.
I'd like tomatoes, but don't know which kind can go in a pot that won't end up 5 feet tall. I found a website a while back for apartment gardening where everything was in pots, but I can't find it anymore.
I also have a huge concrete pot that I'd like to fill with herbs. It's west facing so it gets the afternoon sun. What herbs would be good for that amount of sun?
