FAQ: I love my flowers, but I would also like to grow some vegetables. I don't have room for both. Help!

There's no rule that says you have to keep vegetables separated from flowers. Perhaps you can grow both together. For example, bush beans will grow with petunias. Peppers, onions and roses are compatible. It's easy to make a little space produce a lot.

 Similarly, many veggies would grow well in containers on your patio. Some vegetables, such as the kale pictured above, are as beautiful as flowers.

Another way to enjoy vegetable gardening is to join a community garden project in your area. Find one through the American Community Garden Association.
