NO GARDEN? HERE ARE 66 THINGS YOU CAN GROW AT HOME IN CONTAINERS

(CollectiveAHA) Nowadays, almost all the food that is being sold on the market is GMO or heavily contaminated with pesticides . That’s why it is always better for us to grow our own, safe food. You will know what you eat and you won’t worry about pesticides and chemicals.

With a small effort, we can all become gardeners. Don’t you want to grow your own strawberries, tomatoes, basil, peppers, spinach, kale, mesclun or chard?

Another important thing is that growing your own food is much cheaper. Make sure you opt for the appropriate planter or container and make sure you learn how to do it properly. Start by finding some seeds or starter plants.

Here’s a list of many foods that you can grow even in an urban environment and even if you don’t have enough space for a garden. These tips will serve you a lot!
