I get alot of questions about what veggies to grow in pots, thanks to the work that I did on that vertical garden last year.

Growing veggies in pots is a great way to not only brighten up often bare and bland balconies, but its a great way to cut down a bit of your food bill and keep great food at your fingertips.
