I have personally grown lettuce, tomatoes, herbs, and am now trying potatoes, celery, cabbage. A lot depends on your available space and your lighting. Also my vegetables are not always extremely large when I use them. For instance, I now have a plum tomato plant - the tomatoes are delicious but not as large as you get in a store. I consider them the perfect size for my salads or just for snacking. Going vertical seems to be the idea to max your growing space whether indoors or out. I love the photos of a garden wall in your kitchen.

In 2006, Tokyo-based photographer Asako Shimizu was finally able to fulfill her dream of traveling to Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world. There, inspired by the spectacular image of the seemingly endless horizon, as well as her relationship with the Earth, Shimizu captured a series of stunning photographs titled On Her Skin. http://dlvr.it/6xNPft
