Home Depot CITY PICKERS 24.5 in. x 20.5 in. Patio Raised Garden Bed Grow Box Kit with Watering System and Casters in Aquamarine $25 Free Shipping 1-7-18 only [homedepot.com]

I submitted a price match to amazon [amazon.com]. They accepted price match. It has been $26.00 (usually $31-$34) on Amazon since early December 2017.

I already own several of the City Pickers. I had so much fun growing vegetables last summer. I am going to try the Potato Planter [homedepot.com] this summer for $25.

Amazon has it for about $42.

Great deal OP! Can't wait for summer.

Do you know how many plants you can plant in this?

In one container, I planted 3 tomato plants, 2 cherry varieties and one regular. You still need tomato cages as they grow like crazy and need support.

In others, I planted peppers, broccoli, lettuce. So, from 3 to 5 plants per container depending on how big the plant will get.

I also wanted to speak to those of you who are suffering from anxiety and depression or know someone who is. Turn off your computer and go plant something.

You may want to think about using several top inches of straw in your potato planter. Mr. Yamamoto, a proponent of straw gardening, would lift up the straw without disturbing the plant to pick the new potatoes. Neat idea. In my home compost I had this gigantic russet that volunteered from my kitchen waste. Trees inc left me this fantastic fluffy tree leaves (for lack of a better name can be 20 inches long) that weigh nothing but have huge coverage. My volunteer russet must have covered 40 square inches at the bottom. It was immense until the frost killed it. You can use potatoes from the store. They are sprayed with antigrowth formulas. Usually they take off fine. The only downside many of commercial seed potatoes are better isolated from disease. Are you going to try Yukon golds?

You could plant the patio variety and put in 3 easy or you could put in an ace or celebrity tomato maybe get in 1 or 2. It depends on how you support your tomato. My dad use to guide grape vines around the patio by stringing the vines to the rafters. Same could be done with tomatoes and would make easy pickings but more work to string these things. I use 5 ft tall horse fence with 6 in openings. Youtube has all kinds of different ideas. I saw a picture of a 32 ft. long hydroponic tomato on the victory garden 30 years ago. Good luck.
