Top 5 Edible Plants to Grow in Your Home

Weber County Tenant Trimming Indoor HerbsIf growing fruits and vegetables is your hobby, there’s no need to let a small yard or lack of space stop you. There are multiple edible plants that you can grow right inside your Weber County rental home or apartment! Edible plants give natural beauty and delicious vegetables or herbs that you can utilize in your cooking. Plus, they are easy to grow indoors if you have a little time and a sunny spot near a window, patio, or balcony. To get your edible indoor garden started, let’s take a deeper look at some of those plants that survive in a pot or planter.

1. Strawberries

One excellent candidate for your indoor edible garden is a strawberry plant. While many strawberry plants that grow outdoors tend to require a lot of areas, other types are more compact and perfect for container gardening. Strawberry plants look great in hanging pots or freestanding containers and offer both pretty flowers as well as sweet fruit.

2. Peppers

There are numerous varieties of both hot and sweet peppers that are simple to grow indoors. For instance, jalapenos and other regular hot peppers can grow successfully along with other edible indoor plants. Alternatively, if you prefer sweet peppers, search for variants that are suited to grow in containers.

3. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are another great option for your indoor garden. Just be sure to purchase determinate tomato plant varieties, which are normally smaller plants but still produce some of the finest tomatoes you’ll ever eat. Regardless if you choose cherry tomatoes or a variety large enough to slice, it is definitely easy growing tomatoes in your rental home.

4. Lettuce

Easy to grow, lettuce tends to survive in cooler weather, which makes it another perfect option for an indoor garden. What is more, lettuce tends to grow quickly from seed, so you may have a garden-fresh salad or garnish in a very short period.

5. Herbs

In case you don’t have sufficient space or plan to pursue your indoor garden with the basics, growing herbs is a good choice. Many herbs need just a windowsill to thrive, and fresh herbs taste great in any dish. To begin with, think about growing basil, mint, or thyme in small pots or a container. All of these herbs are easy to grow and don’t need a lot of space.

In the end, your indoor garden can be as plain or as desirable as you would like – and as space will allow. But with so many great variations, you’re likely to meet your green thumb with an indoor garden.
