Ever thought you can’t garden because you don’t have a big enough garden spot or backyard? Just because you have a small space doesn’t mean you can’t grow some amazing plants — even edible ones. Here are several different edible plants you can grow yourself — even if you live in an apartment.
The best part about growing avocados (besides eating them) is the fact that the only thing you need to grow them is — you guessed it — an avocado. Remove and rinse the pit, then push 3 to 4 toothpicks into the center, spaced out so you can suspend the pit over a glass. Fill the glass so that the fatter end of the pit is sitting in the water. Keep the water level up, and in a few weeks, you should have a baby avocado tree, ready to plant. Once rooted, transplant it in to a pot and leave it in a sunny place. Give it a frequent, light watering and watch it grow — and hopefully bear fruit.
If you love salad, you should be growing micro greens. Plant the seeds in a shallow container and keep it in a sunny, warm window, and your health will thank you.
No kidding! You can plant tomatoes in pots as long as they are 6 inches or larger and have a warm, sunny window to keep them in (12 hours of sunlight per day).
Although growing mushrooms indoors requires a very specific procedure to get them going, it’s probably easier than you might think. You’ll need to get some mushroom spawn and sterilize the growing medium, but once you know how to do it, it’s pretty simple.
Radishes are an ideal compliment to your salad and microgreens, and are pretty low-maintenance as far as growing indoors is concerned.
You can grow oranges and lemons indoors, too! Get a dwarf variety of mandarin orange or lemon tree, and all they’ll need is a good sunny location and a large pot.
7. Green Beans
A large pot with a teepee-like structure is required, but growing green beans indoors is easy after that.
