    don't be afraid. just start with something simple and small. perhaps potatoes in a bucket. the rest will sort itself out.

you can grow potatoes in a bucket, a tough plastic bag, even in a bale of straw.

    I grow my a few of my own veggies too. I grow purple hull peas, lady peas, lima beans, speckled butter beans, tomoatoes, cucumbers, okra and corn. Saves a ton of money!

    you can also grow fruit. strawberries require little space. there are dwarf varieties of fruit trees. start with something easily grown in your area. you can even grow commercial grapes for winemaking.

    there are a lot of videos on youtube about the technical aspects of growing fruit and veg.
