Home garden using grow bags/fabric pots/root pouch bags/air pruning bags and automated drip irrigation.

Grow Containers:
I have tried many methods of gardening for past many years. These bags are the best so far for me apart from hydroponics (completely different topic by itself).
I love them for their
-Portability - lift with handles and move around
-Availability - just order online
-Economy - about 2$ a piece
-Airpruning - breathable and plants thrive in them. Check out airpruning concept
-Easy setup - open the bag, fill with dirt and plant.
I used to be great fan of raised beds but no more.

Check on amazon for fabric pots and buy based on the reviews and price. Go for 7 gallon bags

Automated Drip Irrigation:

Helps me focus my energy and efforts on high value activities in the garden. Watering is monotonous, ties you down to the garden (I hate it if gardening comes in my way for vacation or work travel), low value (doesn't mean unimportant) compared to other activities and highly automatable. It gives me more time for pruning, pest control and nutrition.

Helps irrigate at regular intervals and regular amount. I believe its very important to eat on-time and right amount for individuals and so for plants too. It also helps me create a dry cycle one day per week. Dry cycle is very important for plants generative growth. Timers help achieve this.

Drop by drop at the roots helps save water and avoid water on the plants. Plants doesn't love water on them all the times. Excess moisture on leaves causes diseases.

Drip irrigation is as easy as kids playing Lego bricks. Little bit of conceptual understanding, material planning and installation.

Deer/Bunny/others repellent:
Bought electronic repellent thats activated based on movement and gives out High/Medium/Low frequency noise along with strobe lighting to deter animals.

Fertilization:
I plan to use below for fertilizing once every 2 weeks.

During flowering and fruiting stage, one handful every 2 weeks.

Pest Control:
Spray above and under the leaves every 2 weeks. Increase the frequency to every week if there is pest attack. Better to have regular preventive application rather than reactive application.
