Growing plants in difficult conditions, using various containers
Growing vegetables in containers anywhere
Growing vegetables in containers provide option when land is a problem

If you have not considered the option of growing vegetables in containers, perhaps you should.
Container gardens provide a way to grow vegetables when suitable land is not available. Apartment dwellers may only have a balcony where pots could be placed. Other gardeners may find that the only areas in their yards that get the full sun vegetables need are covered by concrete.
In addition, growing vegetables in containers is less physically demanding than growing vegetables in the ground. That makes this method good for older gardeners, those who are physically handicapped, young children or anyone who may find cultivating and weeding in-ground beds too physically demanding or time consuming.
