Veg and fruit need the sunlight really. What about containers or a window box?

or perhaps a small pot of rocket?

You could try herbs? smile Tomatoes grow very well in a greenhouse, so you could try these too.

Small containers;

Strawberries are great. They produce their own shoots which make new plants (so free strawberry plants).




Carrots (not many though, they need space)

I tried grapes once but the vine died sad

I've grown 'cherry bomb' chilli plants in pots on my windowsill for the past few years. As long as they're kept warm but out of direct sunlight, they're really low maintenance. Soooo satisfying when you actually get to cook with something which you know couldn't be fresher.

We had rabbits (sadly both died in past yr but were 8) n a small garden in old house n husband had those long plastic troughs he drilled holes in edge took handles off coat hangers n hook them through then hooked onto the ledges of fence in back garden so had strawberries in those n green beans. Also had a raised bed with fencing round grew rabbit friendly stuff in there as the buggers managed to get in. Tomatoes in hanging baskets n potatoes in big sacks.
