Top 5 Edible Plants to Grow in Your Home

Minneapolis Tenant Trimming Indoor HerbsIf growing fruits and vegetables is your hobby, don’t let a small yard or lack of space keep you from pursuing it. There are various edible plants that you can grow right inside your Minneapolis rental home or apartment! Edible plants produce both natural beauty and delicious vegetables or herbs to use in your cooking. They are also very easy to grow indoors if you have some time and a sunny spot near a window, patio, or balcony. To get your edible indoor garden started, let’s take a closer look at some plants that do well in a pot or planter.

1. Strawberries

One recommended option for your indoor edible garden is a strawberry plant. Even though some strawberry plants that grow outdoors typically need a huge area, a few classes are more compact and perfect for container gardening. Strawberry plants look wonderful in hanging pots or freestanding containers, and they give both pretty flowers and sweet fruit.

2. Peppers

There are a handful of varieties of both hot and sweet peppers that are not difficult to grow indoors. To give an example, jalapenos and other regular hot peppers can grow perfectly together with other edible indoor plants. In contrast, if you prefer sweet peppers, look for assortments that are intended to grow in containers.

3. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are one more great option for your indoor garden. Simply be sure to acquire determinate tomato plant varieties, which are smaller plants while still producing some of the best tomatoes you’ll ever eat. Regardless of whether you prefer cherry tomatoes or a variety large enough to slice, growing tomatoes in your rental home is not complicated.

4. Lettuce

Easy to grow, lettuce inclines to survive in cooler weather, making it an ideal option for an indoor garden. In addition, lettuce tends to grow quickly from seed, which means you’ll be able to eat a garden-fresh salad or garnish easily.

5. Herbs

If you have a small space or planning to start your indoor garden with the basics, growing herbs is the right choice. Various herbs need only a windowsill to thrive, and fresh herbs taste wonderful in any dish. To begin with, consider growing basil, mint, or thyme in small pots or a container. Every one of these herbs is simple to grow and doesn’t need a lot of space.

In the end, your indoor garden can be as modest or as impressive as you want – and as space will allow. However, with such countless great selections, you’ll be capable of satisfying your green thumb with an indoor garden.
