"Baby" or "Mini" Vegetables

 

I have placed here our personal selection of mini vegetables suitable for small gardens or container growing.
 

Even if you do not have a lot of room there are always some varieties of vegetables that you could try growing; in a small dedicated patch; or perhaps amongst your flower borders; grown in containers or even hanging baskets!

Generally so called "Mini Vegetables" are either smaller varieties that can be grown a lot closer together or they are varieties suitable for harvesting when young as "Baby Veg" Have a look at my suggestions below and you choose whatever grabs your interest?
