You don't need a yard to grow tasty food. You can transform a sliver of space into a stylish and edible oasis. Andrea Bellamy, writer and creator of the Heavy Petal blog
and author of the new book Sugar Snaps and Strawberries, gives up the dirt on growing gorgeous
with very little square footage. So go ahead, picture that tiny nook, corner, strip, porch, alley, balcony, or postage-stamp-sized yard overflowing with fragrant herbs, sugar
snap peas, French breakfast radishes, and scarlet runner beans.
