This amazing vertical garden succulent panel [5] has everything you need (except the plants, which you should buy locally) to get you going.

Potted Vegetable Fire Escape Garden [6]

If you don’t have much space like most apartment dwellers, you can still grow your own veggies over the summer. If you have a nice sunny place, you can create a mini garden with pots just like Mike Lieberman did on his NYC apartment fire escape [6]. Lieberman’s tips on small space gardening will give you the info you need to start your very own garden on your fire escape, balcony, deck, small yard or even on a window sill.
