There is nothing more satisfying than looking out into your garden over to a little raised bed area and seeing theseeds and plug plants that you have loving placed into the compost starting to grow. Freshly picked vegetables andfruits always seem to have a better taste than the ones that you can pick up in the supermarket. Even if you have thesmallest of gardens or perhaps just a balcony outside your apartment you can grow a whole variety of different vegetables.
Freshly grown vegetables are becoming a staple in many households and there are also many restaurants that areeither working closely with local farmers or have their own vegetable gardens to supply them with the best seasonal vegetables all year round. You can often see the results of their harvesting in the Saladette Counter, like the ones that you can see at fridgefreezerdirect.co.uk/commercial-refrigeration-brands/i-l/interlevin/interlevin-esa900-refrigerated-saladette-counter

If you are looking for some ideas on what to grow take a look at some suggestions below:
.Leafy vegetables – These types of vegetables are incredibly easy to grow in a variety of containers from largeraised beds through to troughs and containers. They require a small depth of soil, although depending on
the variety that you are choosing, they can take up quite a bit of space when they start to spread out theirleaves. There are some great options if you are looking for pick and come again types which mean that you can simply take out the few leaves that you want to use, and the plant will continue to grow new leaves. The only growing concern with leafy vegetables is that they really don’t like to have soggy roots so if you have clay-based soil you will get a better harvest if you use containers filled with good quality compost.
.Root vegetables – again these are fairly easy to grow and lend themselves to larger troughs and containers very well. This is due to the fact that you can buy specialist varieties that won’t grow too long and they even the standard varieties will only grow to the space that they have available to them under the ground. The root vegetables that you can grow include carrots, parsnips, radishes and beetroot.
.Tomatoes – it is best to grow tomatoes in specialist, nutrient rich soil and to ensure that you regularly feed them with a bespoke plant food. Other than their soil requirements tomatoes can be grown in containers such as pots and in hanging baskets and you can pick the varieties that suit you best, whether this may be a small cherry tomato variety or a larger beef tomato option.
