Answer: The sourcebook "Passport to Gardening" (by LaLiberte & Watson, Chelsea Green Press 1997) suggests "The Movable Harvest" by Chuck & Barbara Crandall (Chapters, 1995). For "instant info", check out the fact sheet at http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/1329/ <br>and http://www.ext.va.edu/pubs/envirohort/general/container.html... love container gardening - do quite a bit of it myself, almost all of my veggies are in containers. Of course the first vegetable that comes to mind are tomatoes. Burpee carries several varieties specifically hybridized to grow well in containers. Generally, compact and fast growers like lettuces, shallow root crops like radishes and beets, and fruiting crops like chili peppers, tomatoes, and mini bell peppers will grow well in containers. I have also had success with broccoli, cauliflower, and baby carrots. Of course you can't forget about herbs to accompany your vegetables! The main consideration is choosing a container appropriate for the plants,yet will fit on a second floor balcony. The books mentioned above should help! Enjoy!
