Do not be discouraged by the small size of your yard. You can easily convert even a small yard into a lush vegetable garden by growing veggies in plant pots and containers. However, not all types of vegetables can be grown in planters. Nevertheless, there are a number of common vegetable varieties such as beets, beans, carrots, cucumber, onion and eggplants that can easily grow in pots. To realize your gardening dream, select the dwarf or the baby varieties of the vegetables that can survive and grow in limited space. While the leafy green vegetables are the popular choices, with appropriate care you can grow a number of other vegetables in pots and containers.
