Potted Patio Gardening - Knowledgebase Question

Question by gypsymom2007

I have just started a 'Salsa' and herb garden in pots on my patio and am concerned about them 'drowning' with all our current rain. I have tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, lettuce, berries and herbs. They have drainage holes in the pots. Is that enough?

If you planted in potting soil rather than garden soil, your plants should be safe. Potting soil drains a lot faster than garden soil. There's not much you can do to control the rain but having your plants in pots is better than having them in a garden bed that will soak up moisture from nearby ground as well as the water from the rain. I think your salsa garden will weather the storm without problem.
