I desperately miss living in the country so this spring I am bringing the country to my balcony and growing a few vegetables.

The light you see on the nearest plant is from a UV light I have pointed at it because it is expecting babies soon!

There are currently 6 planters in the back row, 6 planters in the front row, and 5 planters hanging.

(There is 2x12 board on a couple of concrete blocks creating a shelf for the back row to help keep the plants in light.)
My wife raises all her/our herbs in pots. Kind of a no-brainer, regarding how easy it is.

We've also raised peppers & tomatoes in pots, though we don't do so now because we have several huge garden plots.

Basically, you just need to know that your soil, moisture, and sunlight are the three main ingredients - the soil being primary.

You also need to keep in mind that some plants - like potatoes - just aren't going to be suitable for container gardening.
