Do you want to raise vegetables but don’t have a farm? Cheer up! It is possible and practical to raise small organic gardens right at your own backyard.     Here are some vegetable types that you may start with in your small organic gardens:


1. Carrots. Though some carrots may take long time to grow, there are types of carrots that are fast-growing and best suitable for containers like the ‘Babette’ type. One technique that may also be adapted is seeding your carrots with some flowers in a pot. Your carrots will be ready before the flower roots take control of your container.


2. Radishes. Radishes love cool and moist conditions. It is where they grow best. These conditions may be provided to them by your small containers. The different varieties of radishes will entertain the idea of growing quickly in your small gardens. They may also be planted in a container together with the carrots mentioned above. As you have pulled your grown radishes, the growing carrots will have its place to expand at.
