  • Absolutely! You can grow veggies in nearly anything. Just make sure you purchase seeds/plants that are compact & more suited to container gardening. Also, if you google "container gardening", you should get lots of how-to & informational links. Your local library may have some books or you could purchase one from a book store.

  • You can do it. But I don't think it is a way to save money. Pots, dirt, seeds, plants are expensive. But it is very possible. Maybe you can get the pots on freecycle.

  • Yes. Do you have access to an orchard? They actually sell potted vegetables plants specifically for people like yourself who live in apartments or need to travel.

  • I would grow herbs instead. You can put them to use every time you cook and they are small and easy to take care of.
