In a small garden, it is even more important to get the most out of all the available space, so choose large containers and grow fast-maturing crops, such as lettuce, with slower-growing vegetables. Here red-leaved lettuces, planted around a zucchini, are ready for harvest, while the zucchini plant still has a long fruiting season ahead of it. The neighboring sweet pepper plant shares its pot with a fine specimen of basil.
