by Alex Mitchell

A vibrantly illustrated, user-friendly guide to designing and growing fruit, vegetable, and herb gardens in containers, window boxes, and more.

If you're a city or suburb dweller, you need not rely on farmers’ markets or overpriced grocery stores to get ingredients for your next salad or smoothie: all you need is a balcony, rooftop, patio, or even just a window box to grow fresh, flavorful produce.

In The Edible Balcony, journalist and longtime gardener Alex Mitchell presents a quick and easy, budget-friendly route to urban and suburban fruit, vegetable, and herb gardening—packed with inspirational ideas for planning and designing your space, building containers using recycled and salvaged materials, and raising a variety of simple foods from tomatoes to greens to exotics such as wild strawberries and blue potatoes.

Also included are lists and explanations of the diverse crops most suited to your space and gorgeous color photos on every page to demonstrate the vibrant possibilities of gardening in the heart of a bustling metropolis or the confines of your suburban property.

Practical, entertaining, and packed with conversational tips and creative ideas, The Edible Balcony is every urban gardener’s answer to transforming even the most limited of outdoor spaces into a flourishing personal Eden.

This book has so many great ideas for gardening in small spaces. Things like using bicycle tires and colanders for pots. I can't wait to try some of them.
