Growing Vegetables in an Apartment

I would like to know if there is any way that I can raise some vegetables especially tomato plants this summer? My husband and I live in a small second floor apartment with no porch or yard. Any help would be appreciated.

I have a nice yard but prefer to grow my vegetables on the deck since the deer can't get up there. You can grow snow peas in containers if you give them something to climb on and the leaf lettuces work well. These are spring veggies. When they're done, you can plant something else like green beans in the same containers.

Tomatoes work well in pickle buckets as long as they have some support (circular cages will work). You will have to water the tomatoes often. Also, wash out your egg shells and sprinkle them on the soil. They give the tomatoes their needed calcium and help to prevent blossom end rot.

You can even grow melons with the roots in containers and the fruit resting on the deck.

There are to companies that make grow boxes:

1. The Grow Box

2.The Earthe Bos.

You can look them up on the computer. These grow boxes are easier than gardening. Hope you enjoy them, MaryBelle

Try www.hydroponics.com. They have pretty much anything for growing indoors.
