Container Gardening For Free Food
Growing Food in Containers
When you decide to grow vegetables, fruit, or herbs in containers, you will be limited only by your own imagination! Almost anything can serve as a container to grow something you wish to have. Growing your own produce is a really good way to acquire free food that you and your family will enjoy!
You may look around your house, garage, or basement and find containers just waiting to be filled with dirt and seeds or transplants! It may be pots that held long dead ivy or other house plants that you never got around to tossing out. It my be tubs of any size. It may be... well just about anything!
Bins and Buckets
Baskets Of Vegetables
Wood Pallets Can Lean On A Wall
Think Outside The Box
You can also think inside the box! One year I grew "container" tomatoes" in cardboard boxes on my front porch.
You can have tiny pots of herbs on your kitchen window seal, or an old bathtub full of cucumbers in your backyard.
Anyway you decide to do it, and with whatever containers you may use, growing your own produce is a great way to have free food.
Growing your own produce also insures that you know what you are eating. You can choose what to grow, the soil you use, along with any fertilizers. You can go organic if you want to, or grow conventionally.
