How to Grow a Fruit and Vegetable Garden in the City
Aaah, when I lived in the city, I longed for a garden of my own. I had a tiny little deck that overlooked a manmade pond. What I didn’t know then was that I had all I needed to grow a garden right there outside my sliding glass door.
If you live in an apartment, you can grow a vegetable garden the very same way I grow MY vegetable garden. I might have a big yard, but the way I plant and grow my veggies is the same way you can do it. Container gardening is the answer.
How to Grow Vegetables in an Apartment
All you need to grow vegetables in an apartment is a few containers, some potting mix, and seeds or seedlings. That’s it.
If you have a deck or balcony like I did, just scoot everything out there and water the seeds or seedlings regularly.
If you don’t have a balcony or deck, just find the sunniest window in your home. South-facing windows are best. You’ll get sun almost all day in a south-facing window.
What Kinds of Vegetables Can Grow in an Apartment?
You’re really only limited by your available space.
- Herbs can be grown on a kitchen counter, using under counter lights for a light source.
- Radishes can be grown in an apartment window box.
- Short hybrid carrots just need a flower pot and a windowsill..
- Tomatoes need the most room. If you have room in your apartment for a five gallon bucket, you have room for a tomato plant.
