Container Gardening – it’s inexpensive, fun and healthy! Enjoy fresh salad vegetables at your fingertips. Even apartment dwellers that have sunlight drenched areas can become bountiful container gardeners. Cats can be a problem though (sorry), and a major consideration since they think anything with dirt is a litter box.

For the price of a single grocery store salad…
you can grow enough of your own leafy greens to have fresh, organic salads for weeks! You need very little space, hardly any preparation, and only a little bit of effort. You don’t need a plot of land to grow fresh vegetables. Seeds will last past their expiration if kept in air tight container in the refrigerator.
Soak the seeds in water 2-3 days before using, for a better start when planted

First, you’ll need the seed for the greens. You can buy seeds online or at your local garden store.

Salad green seeds come in quite a variety. You can choose from a mesclun mix, spinach, a variety of leaf lettuces, plus some unusual additions such as wheatgrass, sunflower greens or radish greens.

Often, you can find seed packets, in season, for ten cents per package! And tomatoes, everyone’s favorite are ideal for container gardening.

All you need in sunlight and the patience to water and tend to your container garden and enjoy mother nature’s tasty fresh rewards.
