Growing your own food in containers indoors and on your deck or patio not only gives you a healthier lifestyle, but also allows the natural order of plants to become ever present in your daily life. Through this book, we hope to enable you to enjoy a taste of the tropics without leaving the comfort of your home and backyard. We have chosen plants that will grow well in containers in all areas of the country, inside during the winter and outside during the summer. (Southern gardeners can raise some of these plants outdoors year-round.)
