Dwarf Vegetables for Small Spaces

Earlier in the month, I blogged about dwarf fruit trees, but did you know there are dwarf vegetables, too? Perfect for container growing, for fitting into small gardens, and for growing up trellises (if the veggie vines), there are a variety of veggies available in dwarf varieties. Here is just a sampling.
