    I am actually growing strawberries and Peas in my house right now
    using this method. It's really awesome, the only difficulty is
    balancing a trellis (Which might end up being duct taped to the pot
    pretty darn soon!)

    Default GARDENING TIPS etc

    if you are tight on space plant ITALIAN TOMATOES - romas or what ever more
    tomato less gook .. cuts down on processing time if you can too

    use 3x5 boxes not 4x4 - it'll save you back - reaching across 3 feet is
    easier .. I used my 3x5 for squash etc .. I have gone down to 18 inch wide as
    I'll
    gotten older - my arthritis and back hurt to much for the wider boxes now ..

    make some 2x10 boxes these are wonderful for tomatoes - I run 3 rows of
    tomatoes in them 11 down the center and 10 on the sides - total 31 plants ..
    they
    end up shading out the weeds

    PT has warnings out for use with foods/gardens ..

    garden boxes in windows through the winter for greens

    plant mini tomatoes in hanging baskets

    make an A or H frame for cukes the cukes will hang down through the 2 x 2
    holes of fencing

    plant peas on high wire fence, pick peas that have edible pods they freeze
    well

    5 GALLON drywall mud containers work well for container gardening -- toss in
    a few healthy inches of packing peanuts, then I do a layer of tea bags, then
    dirt .. you can plant one tomato or green pepper and plant around it 2-3 cukes
    (if you also have floor space) or carrots, onions, greens, flowers, herbs ..
