Can I plant a bell pepper and cherry tomato plant together in the same container? It is a very large container that holds about 2 cu ft of soil. Thank you.

Yes! I did it last summer. I did not get very many tomatoes and peppers though. I fed the tomato and green pepper plants a weak solution of Miracle Grow for tomatoes every week. I believe my problem was more the heat (south Florida) than nutrients.
I did it last summer, too. I used a big plastic hanging pot, cut out the center of the bottom, planted the tomato upside down (hanging), and 2 pepper plants coming out the top. Hung it from the pergola. Got veggies from all the plants. I live in a townhouse with limited growing space and this was a excellent solution for me.
