Summary

If you are a city 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, a rooftop, or a window box to grow fresh, flavorful produce of your own. In The Edible Balcony, journalist and longtime gardener Alex Mitchell presents a quick and easy route to urban fruit, vegetable, and herb-growing - packed with inspirational ideas for planning and designing your space, specific, step-by-step projects for building containers with recycled and salvaged materials, and raising a rich variety of easy and - not-in-the-shops - edibles from tomatoes to greens to wild strawberries to blue potatoes. Also included are lists and explanations of the diverse crops most suited to you and your space and gorgeous, 4-color photos on every page to demonstrate the vibrant possibilities of gardening in the heart of a bustling metropolis. A practical guide designed to entertain, inform and inspire with casual 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.
