    Sounds like somewhere in the South most likely.  I'd so the same if I had 14 acres, but have been a renter for quite some time.  Sigh.

      ...container gardening! My Mom used to grow the best tomatoes on her apartment patio in slit-open bags of soil. Now they have tomato planters that hang upside down (no staking!). You can grow fresh young salad in a 3" deep flat (and spinach), kale and/or collards in a pot (harvest outside leaves, they'll keep producing), potatoes in a barrel of straw. Having rented for most of our lives, how do you think I got the practice for a quarter acre of real dirt!!!?? §;o)
