Of course, if you live in an apartment or a small place in the city, one of the great ways to still have fresh tomatoes and berries is to grow them in window boxes on your patio, balcony or off your windows.

There are some advantages to growing fruit, veggies and herbs in window boxes:

  • Usually no slugs
  • Usually no rot
  • Quick access when you’re cooking!

You will want to pay attention to your window box water situation because it can quickly drain and dry out – since there isn’t a lot of earth under your window box, it’s hard for it to stay damp.  So just try to keep on top of it.
