Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - By Steve Whysall

FOOD gar­den­ing is still the biggest trend in gar­den­ing as more and more peo­ple, es­pe­cially young fam­i­lies, try their hand at grow­ing veg­eta­bles and fruit in their back­yards. If they don’t have a back­yard, they

are grow­ing food in tubs and con­tain­ers — call them crops in pots — on a deck, bal­cony or pa­tio, or get­ting a plot at a nearby com­mu­nity gar­den. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. But if you are a new­comer to the world of food gar­den­ing, here are a few help­ful tips, plus some rec­om­men­da­tions about the best va­ri­eties to try grow­ing, ei­ther from seed or from seedlings.
