No Yard, No Problem: Build Your Own Pocket Garden

Growing your food is a trend nowadays, as numerous websites and lifestyle shows feature the health benefits of home-grown food to you and your family. However, growing your food in the city can be quite a challenge for most city-dwellers due to various issues such as limited space, access to proper sunlight exposure, or lack of good soil source. 

Fret not, aspiring garden guru because we got you. Surprisingly, some herbs and veggies grow well in pots. Tomatoes, peppers, salad greens, and micro-greens don’t have deep roots and grow up to a manageable height making them perfect potted food factories right on your windowsill. For seeds and samplings, you can go online and order them to your doorstep or visit your local seed bank or plant shop.

Pots don’t have to be clay pots at all! Just punch drainage holes in your takeaway cups or ice cream tubs, and you have yourself a container for your greenies. Find a window in your apartment or condo unit with the best sunlight exposure, and remember to keep your greenies hydrated. Enjoy gardening!
