Top 5 Edible Plants to Grow in Your Home

Twin Falls Tenant Trimming Indoor HerbsIf you like growing fruits and vegetables, having a small yard or lack of space is not an issue. There are many edible plants that you can grow right inside your Twin Falls rental home or apartment! Edible plants provide natural beauty and delicious vegetables or herbs for cooking. They are also pretty simple to grow indoors if you’ve got some time and a sunny spot near a window, patio, or balcony. To get your edible indoor garden started, we will talk about a few plants that flourish in a pot or planter.

1. Strawberries

One excellent choice for your indoor edible garden is a strawberry plant. Though most strawberry plants that grow outdoors regularly require a lot of space, other kinds are more compact and perfect for container gardening. Strawberry plants fit perfectly in hanging pots or freestanding containers, and they produce beautiful flowers and delicious fruit.

2. Peppers

There are many varieties of both hot and sweet peppers that are simple to grow indoors. For instance, jalapenos and other typical hot peppers can grow well together with some edible indoor plants. On the other hand, if you prefer sweet peppers, look for options that are designed to grow in containers.

3. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are one more great option for your indoor garden. Just keep in mind to buy determinate tomato plant varieties, which tend to be smaller plants while still producing some of the best-tasting tomatoes you’ll ever experience. Regardless of whether you choose cherry tomatoes or a variety large enough to slice, it’s hard to go wrong growing tomatoes in your rental home.

4. Lettuce

Easy to grow, lettuce tends to flourish in cooler weather, making it an excellent option for an indoor garden. Furthermore, lettuce tends to grow quickly from seed, which means that you can eat a garden-fresh salad or garnish in a little while.

5. Herbs

If you don’t have enough space or would like to begin your indoor garden with the basics, growing herbs is a great choice. Lots of herbs can flourish on a windowsill, and fresh herbs taste delicious in any dish. To start with, think about selecting basil, mint, or thyme in small pots or a container. All of these herbs are easy to grow and don’t take up much space.

After all, your indoor garden can be as simple or as extravagant as you prefer – and as space will allow. However, with so many wonderful alternatives, you’ll be able to fulfill your green thumb with an indoor garden.
