No Garden? Here are 66 Edible Plants You Can Grow at Home in Containers


Growing your own fresh produce is pretty amazing and eye-opening experience. You get to learn how fruits and veggies grow and you will have pesticide-free foods on your table. You will also avoid any issues regarding transport and trips to the grocery store.



And yes, we all can be gardeners, it takes just a minimal effort. If you go for being a first-timer, you shall enjoy strawberries, basil and tomatoes first. Peppers, kale spinach, chard and mesclun are ready for use once the last frost is gone. You can grow these on your tiny terrace, and a little DIY carpentry could really be of great help.

Take the “challenge,” and grow your own food. It is quite rewarding and inexpensive. However, make sure you are using the right container or planter, learn more about the steps of maintenance and find some high-quality seeds or starter plants.
