There is nothing more satisfying than growing your own vegetables for use in the kitchen. Most are surprisingly easy to grow, and will reward you with a healthy crop, that is often much more tasty than shop bought items. Even if you don't have large garden many types of vegetables can be grown in tubs and containers in the back yard or on a small balcony. They just need three basic things to grow: sunlight, water and good soil.
