I use package peanuts for drainage, they work well.  this year I had a few tomatoes that weighted almost a pound. I try and keep the pots above ground by putting them in stands made for pots.  I water them on a regular basis if it dont rain as the soil drys out fast in pots.  I also grew burpee's green and purple peppers and they did just as well.

"It's getting to be that time when I need to cut back my basil and mint. Could you please tell me the proper way to harvest these and the best way to either dry or freeze?  Also, the little seeds at the top of the basil plant just as its dying off, do I save those and use them? I'm not sure."

<![CDATA[Growing Basil in apartment]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/456/growing-basil-in-apartment I live in an apartment, but luckily have a nice balcony.  I'd like to try growing some basil out there.  Any recommendations or ideas for someone who has a small space like myself?  And I've never grown anything either Cool
