Most vegetables will adapt to growing in containers. Tomatoes have deep roots so I'd suggest using a 5 gallon container for them. The rest can grow in 2-3 gallon containers. Use potting soil for your veggies and rotate the kinds of veggies you plant in the containers - just in case the soil is harboring any disease pathogens. Make sure your containers have adequate drainage holes, set them in full sunshine, and water as often as necessary to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Best wishes with your garden.
