Top 5 Edible Plants to Grow in Your Home

San Antonio Tenant Trimming Indoor HerbsIf you love growing fruits and vegetables, a small yard or lack of space shouldn’t hinder you from doing that. There are a couple of edible plants that you can grow right inside your San Antonio rental home or apartment! Edible plants deliver natural beauty and delicious vegetables or herbs to utilize in your cooking. They are also fairly 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, we will bring up some plants that succeed in a pot or planter.

1. Strawberries

Probably the best option for your indoor edible garden is a strawberry plant. Although numerous strawberry plants that grow outdoors often require a significant amount of space, a few types are more compact and perfect for container gardening. Strawberry plants work beautifully in hanging pots or freestanding containers, and they produce lovely flowers and sweet fruit.

2. Peppers

There are many varieties of both hot and sweet peppers that are simple to grow indoors. For illustration, jalapenos and other common hot peppers can grow well together with other edible indoor plants. On the other side, if you prefer sweet peppers, look for varieties that are intended to grow in containers.

3. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are another great option for your indoor garden. Just be sure to choose determinate tomato plant varieties, which are commonly smaller plants but still producing some of the best-tasting tomatoes you’ll ever experience. Regardless of whether you opt for cherry tomatoes or a variety huge enough to slice, it’s cheap and easy growing tomatoes in your rental home.

4. Lettuce

Easy to grow, lettuce flourishes in cooler weather, making it a brilliant option for an indoor garden. Besides, lettuce inclines to grow quickly from seed, which indicates that you can enjoy a garden-fresh salad or garnish in a short span of time.

5. Herbs

If you don’t have considerable space or would like to start your indoor garden with the basics, growing herbs is a good choice. Many herbs need just a windowsill to thrive, and fresh herbs taste amazing in any dish. To get started, basil, mint, or thyme in small pots or a container are good choices. Each one of these herbs is easy to grow and takes up a small portion of space.

Ultimately, your indoor garden can be as simple or as modern as you’d like  – and as space will allow. You’ll be sure to satisfy your green thumb with an indoor garden if you choose one of these great options.
