5 Easy Vegetables You Should Start Indoors

Indoor Plant | Goodwill Car Donations

These Veggies Only Need Minimal Space

While buying fruits and vegetables at your local produce store is definitely easier, there’s nothing quite like growing your own. It’s satisfying to know that you’ve grown them all by yourself and that you had a hand in whatever went into those fruits and vegetables since you planted them.

We never truly know what fertilizers or pesticides were used to grow those vegetables that are sold in huge quantities by food companies. That’s why we’re seeing a steady growth in support toward community gardens, farmers’ markets, and farm-fresh foods.

Growing your own food doesn’t mean you have to allot valuable yard space or prep up your own garden. A small corner at home or space on your windowsill will be more than enough. There are vegetables you can easily grow in small spaces.

You Won’t Have a Hard Time Growing These 5 Veggies

Put your green thumb to good use and start prepping! Indoor gardening does not only need minimal space. It’s also easy to do, especially during the winter season. You can grow these leafy greens all year round. If you don’t have space or if you’re not ready yet to go all out on a garden, give these easy-to-grow vegetables a try.

We’ve listed down the top 5 vegetables you won’t have trouble growing inside your own home:

  1. Beans

Basically, all you need to grow beans is a spot at home where the sun can reach your tiny little friends. You’ll have home-grown beans in no time, no matter the season. As vines start to show, it’s a good idea to plant a little stick or pole to give them something to wrap on as the plant grows.

  1. Mushrooms

This is another vegetable that you can grow without exerting too much effort. Mushrooms are perfect if you don’t have the luxury of time to spend keeping watch over your plants like a diligent gardener. The mushroom is one of the crops that require the most minimal effort to produce. To grow mushrooms, you only need a cool, dark place where they can thrive. Put in your compost and mushroom spawn, add a little water, and you’re pretty much done!

  1. Carrots

Carrots are easy to grow and don’t require too much space. There are also short varieties of carrots that you can grow in small pots. Planting carrots can be done at any time of the year, and you’ll see the results of your labor in only a few short weeks.

  1. Microgreens

All you need to grow these plants are soil and a flat surface or dish. Microgreens are one of the best and easiest vegetables to grow inside your house. They don’t take long to grow and require minimal upkeep.

  1. Tomatoes

Light is key when growing tomatoes. They deserve the best spot by your windows where they can bask in the warm hugs of the sun. Growing your own tomatoes means you finally don’t have to put up with that cardboard-tasting variety that stores usually sell.

Indoor Gardening Is Easy, But Life Definitely Isn’t for These Folks

You won’t have a hard time growing the greens mentioned above. You’ll surely enjoy them, knowing they took a certain amount of care and love to grow.

Why not share the same love to your neighbors in need? There are disabled and other disadvantaged folks in your community who need a helping hand. They can only hope that their lives will eventually turn around for the better with the help of others.
