Your veggies should be just fine in 3-5 gallon pots. As long as you water when needed and feed with a diluted fertilizer, they will grow and produce for you. I use a water soluable fertilizer (Miracle Gro) and mix up a half strength solution (2 TBS in a two gallon watering can) and use it to feed my containerized vegetable plants every 2-3 weeks. Feeding in this way ensures the plants get a constant source of minerals without the worry of over feeding and burning the roots. Best wishes with your veggies!
