I live in,work, and manage an apartment complex. There ain't much ground around here. 2 years ago I put in 3 4x4' square foot garden boxes and fed the squirrels. Last year wasn't much better. Lack of water, lack of time, kids, etc killed it last year. This year we decided to solve some problems. A small fence to keep the kids in while my wife or I work. A play fort to keep them busy. The fence allows my wife to work alone and concentrate on the plants without worrying about the children running into the road. I also added beds to the point we're running out of walking room. This year we're getting tomatoes, Asian eggplant, beans, onions, peppers, lettuce. Everything has done well except our zuch's.
