Not all of us have a lovely plot of land outside our kitchens where we can raise fruits and veggies but fear not, you can still reap the rewards of a kitchen garden.
Condo dwellers can grow herbs and fruits such as tumbling cherry tomatoes and even blueberries in containers. Love potatoes? Why not try growing your own in a coffee bean sack re-purposed from your local roaster. Coffee sacks filled with soil don’t take up a lot of room and you can enjoy homegrown potato salad come harvest time. If you are lucky enough to have a yard raised-bed gardening is a great way to plant a vegetable garden in a smaller amount of space, with added benefits such as easier access to the plants and better drainage.
Some unique, space saving ideas spotted on Pinterest are:
Mason jar indoor herb garden.
Vertical pallet garden.
Talk about enjoying the fruits of your labour!
