Can I grow soybeans in containers? If so, how large a pot will I need and when is the best time to plant them? I live in southern California (zone 10, I think).

Soybeans germinate best when soil temperature is warm (65F-75F) so wait until late spring to sow your seeds. Soybeans grow just like bush beans, and will require only 8"-10" inches of soil depth to accommodate the roots. You can grow a single plant in a one-gallon container, or several plants in a long planter box that's at least 10" deep.
