Small space gardening?

Does anyone live in a condo or apartment and have gardens on your balcony or in your house?

We are really thinking about having one this year and sticking with it. We live in an upstairs condo with a small balcony. I'm just trying to come up with some ideas for small space gardens.

Can you have fruit plants or small fruit trees inside such as blueberries etc?

What about a tower garden? (Juice plus sells them).

I do container gardening in the summer. Never done fruit trees tho. Weve done strawberries, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, carrots. I bought some old wash tubs and drilled holes in the bottoms for drainage and planted in them. They did pretty well.

I don't think blueberries will work inside but maybe on the balcony.

We use containers for out garden because we have bad dirt. It would work for small spaces.

You always see those things where you can hang them up and grow tomoatoes that way.  That wouldn't take up to much space.

I have some large clay pots I use and this year we are doing some vertical gardening. Basically a set of tapered shelves that I'll plant in.
