This is also an excellent way to garden during the cooler winter months. Indoor garden with:
- Window box herb gardens

Depending on where you live, you may be in need of a greenhouse to start or grow your crops. While you might not have the yard space for a full-sized greenhouse, you can buy or make a mini-greenhouse with water bottles, milk jugs, 1 liter pop bottles, clear umbrellas, or plastic bins.
There are many benefits to container gardening. Containers allow you to plant in clean and organic soil, they are portable, and can be planted indoors and outdoors. Build or buy your own raised beds, or garden in plastic garbage cans or containers—which come in just about any size you can think of.
