Get planting!  You don't need a lot of space - I've got a dwarf raspberry bush in a pot, a small peach tree in a pot, a blueberry bush in a pot - plus strawberries in two tiny pots.  I've also managed to grow chives, parsley and thyme in a vegetable trug which I treated myself to from Suttons.   The chives give an amazing burst of colour.
