You don't need a farm or even a yard of any size to have a garden.
Do you have a balcony or patio that gets several hours of sunlight each day? Do you have a windowsill that gets several hours of sunlight each day? Container gardening can be very simple to start herbs or flowers and even a few vegetable varieties.
First, decide what you want to grow. Do you want an herb garden, veggies or fruit (yes fruit), or maybe just a few bee-friendly flowers. I like to make a list that way I can go back and add to it or get rid of items if I change my mind.
Second, check out each variety to be sure they will grow using the methods available to you. Will your garden be container only? Will you use small, large or all shapes and sizes of containers?
