GARDENING WITHOUT A YARD

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+

Don't let the lack of yard space keep you from gardening this Spring and Summer. Many kinds of vegetables thrive in containers, located on patios, balconies, porches or windowsills.

Limited garden space might prevent you from growing some of the larger vegetables. Growing corn on the balcony is not the most practical of ideas. But a wide variety can still be planted in limited spaces, including lettuce, herbs, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, carrots, beans, different kinds of squash, radish, watermelon, chard and spinach.

There are also some miniature and dwarf varieties, such as Thumbelina carrots and other "baby" vegetables which do particularly well in small confined spaces. Vine can be planted in hanging baskets or grown in oak barrels or large pots and then trained onto trellises, stakes or railings.
