Many of us living in the city would like to grow some of our own vegetables, but lack the garden space to do so.
However, you don’t need to be a house owner with a large garden plot to grow part of the vegetables and herbs your family eats! If you have a balcony, a patio, a veranda or any space like that – you can start to grow food.
Maybe you’ve already tried growing on your balcony, but experienced that it did not work out the way you wanted?
The leafs of your tomato plants turned purple and yellow, before falling of – and maybe you can harvest two or three tomatoes. The aphids take over your strawberry plants making the berries way to disgutsing to eat. And the lettuce shoot up and go to flower so the leafs are no longer good to eat ….
Yes, all this – and more – has happened on my balcony! It is easy to get frustrated and give up. There are lots of problems and issues that can cause you to abandon the idea of growing your own food.
Getting some help when you are just starting out, will guide you and let you avoid the biggest mistakes, making it easier for you to create a successful garden you can harvest from straight away.
