Grow It in a Bag: Patio-To-Plate Encourages Container Gardening

As I turn off a dusty road in Temecula wine country, I can’t help but be impressed with Catrina’s green house, where she’s growing just about everything you can imagine.




She’s growing everything–all non-GMO organic seeds she also sells–in containers, to stay in containers. Catrina is convinced urban dweller can grow their “garden of eating” in a bag, which is why she started Patio To Plate.


The eco-bags are eco-friendly and eco-nomical, made from recycled plastic and retails for only $4. What I like about these bags is that they can be put everywhere–on the ground or up on a fence and moved daily so you can catch the daylight. Non genetically modified and organic seeds can also be purchased through Patio to Plate at the cheapest I’ve ever seen, at just $1 a pack.


Since we’re mid-season I don’t recommend buying summer seeds, but look for more cool-weather plants like kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, or carrots. Those will take about three months to mature. If you’re excited to try growing in a bag, be sure to purchase vegetables and fruits that give you a high yield.

I’m growing all these plants in my garden–in fact, those photos are of my very own produce. High producing plants like tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant and peppers can give you daily produce once they get established and will continue to do so until the weather gets cold.
