At Canada Blooms earlier this year, I got a glimpse of some interesting vertical gardening techniques. Living walls and stacked containers demonstrated you can still garden even though one might not have a large area to work with.

Lee Valley has these wonderful stacked containers which I think are ideal for herbs.

Or how about this Wall Garden method:

Even in shade I manage to grow tomatoes. Here I placed my grape tomatoes in a moveable pot (on wheels) to maximize sunny spots (which move through the summer). I also extended the tomato cage with bamboo hoops. Now the tomato stands over 6 feet, and currently over 8 flower batches are in the progress of maturing to fruit in the next few weeks. Yay for vertical growth!
There's a lot of creative ways to maximize space.
