The person with limited gardening space could find it difficult to enjoy the benefits of a vegetable garden. If this is your story, don’t lose hope. There are so many types of vegetables that have been developed to grow in pots, vertical gardens and mixed in with existing plants with similar watering needs.
Your local nurseries should stock seeds and starts for Patio tomatoes, Spacemaster cukes and golf ball-sized carrots. You can buy hanging containers to plant in. Just remember that all containers will dry out faster than planting directly into the ground. The plants will also deplete the food found in the soil faster, so make up a batch of organic tea and water well.
If you want to plant on the cheap side, purchase a good-sized bag of organic soil, poke a few holes in the side of the bag resting on the ground, cut holes in the top side and plant directly into the bag. It is called “gardening in a bag.” The downside is it can look less than attractive, but the results are stellar!
