Perfect for boutique gardens, Thumbelina-size baby vegetables take up relatively little space. You can even plant baby carrots in patio containers or tuck squash into flowerbeds.
Shop gardening catalogs for baby vegetable seeds. We recommend John Scheepers's The Happy Baby Garden. You can also find baby vegetables in specialty markets or online: The Chef's Garden or Melissa's.
