Containers in zone 1

This is part of the area next to the kitchen/bathroom extension, which is south facing. The path running alongside it is all concrete so everything has to be in containers.

In the tub is a Brown Turkey fig with lettuces around the base. There are potatoes in a pot and a potato bag; parsley, rosemary and thyme in pots; and peas, tomatoes, onions and swiss chard are growing in a Marshalls Gro-Bed.

On the right hand side water is diverted from the drain pipe into two water butts. The water comes from the roof of the back of the house and the kitchen/bathroom extension so there is a substantial amount of runoff. I am thinking of adding extra storage capacity to capture more as I do use a lot of water on the containers in dry weather.
