No garden needed.
Living in a big city can be difficult when you want to grow your own fruit and vegetables to reduce your carbon footprint, save some money, or even just have a bit of fun with it. Fortunately, there are a lot of different fruits and vegetables you can grow inside your home without much effort!
So, before we *dig in* (couldn't resist, sorry) - here are the five easiest fruits and vegetables to grow at home that we'll cover:
- Spring Onions
Kale is an easy vegetable to start with for new gardeners (homeners?). It has a sweet, earthy taste and a very mild, subtle flavor. Not only is it easy to grow inside, but kale is also sustainable and a great source of vitamins A, C and K.
One of the main reasons people don't grow their own fruit and vegetables is because they have no yard or garden space, so growing in pots is the perfect solution. On that note - potatoes are also an excellent fruit or vegetable to grow inside your home because they take up little room and grow very quickly, with few problems along the way.
Lettuce is another great beginner plant for people who want to learn how to grow their own vegetables at home. It's inexpensive, simple to maintain and very tasty. The best part about growing lettuce is that it's ready to be harvested from your home in less than two months!
Strawberries are another great fruit for people who want to grow their own vegetables at home because their season of growth is short, and they're ready to harvest again only three months later after planting the seeds! Plus, strawberries taste great!
Spring onions are the last on the list of easiest fruit and vegetables to grow at home. They can be used as a garnish or as an ingredient, and they only take about two months from seed! Plus, you don't even need a garden to grow them because spring onions grow well in pots.
Carrots are a tasty and sustainable fruit or vegetable to grow at home because they require little maintenance, and they're easy for new gardeners to grow. They only take about two months from seed to harvest, so it's perfect if you crave fresh carrots all year round.
Well, there you have it.
By growing fruits and vegetables inside your home, you can easily eat healthier, save money and reduce your carbon footprint!
