I started a vegetable garden in containers and mistakenly purchased 18 3-gallon fabric grow bags online instead of 5-gallon bags.

Can the following be grown in the 3-gallon containers? My plants have already germinated

-cucumbers (sweet burpless hybrid)
-watermelon (bush sugar baby)
-carrot (scarlet Nantes)
-okra (baby bubba hybrid)
-zucchini squash

I'm pretty sure I can scratch the carrots. I also wanted to grow some onions, scallions, and various peppers. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Did you have any luck? I'm seriously thinking about using some grow bags and only know one person who has used them. (Not that I've asked many people.)

Please, what is your location? If you are just now starting veggies I think you may be not in the USA.
