Vegetables

Growing your own food is enjoying a surge in popularity. It trims grocery budgets and provides reassurance about where food comes from. Whether you're ready to plant your first crops or have been growing food for years, you'll find new ideas to keep you going (and growing). For people with limited space -- a small balcony, patio, or porch -- containers are a good solution to growing vegetables; get inspiration from these collections of plants. Many people believe that all vegetables are annuals; not so. There are seven perennial vegetable garden plants that you can harvest year after year.
