Top 5 Edible Plants to Grow in Your Home

Creve Coeur Tenant Trimming Indoor HerbsIf growing fruits and vegetables gives you happiness, don’t let a small yard or lack of space keep you from doing so. There are a couple of edible plants that you can grow right inside your Creve Coeur rental home or apartment! Edible plants give natural beauty and delicious vegetables or herbs that you can utilize 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, we will mention some of the best plants that flourish in a pot or planter.

1. Strawberries

One interesting candidate for your indoor edible garden is a strawberry plant. While some strawberry plants that grow outdoors usually need a large space, other varieties are more compact and perfect for container gardening. Strawberry plants look beautiful in hanging pots or freestanding containers and provide both nice-looking flowers as well as sweet fruit.

2. Peppers

There are several varieties of both hot and sweet peppers that are easy to grow indoors. For illustration, jalapenos and other common hot peppers can grow nicely with other edible indoor plants. Otherwise, if you prefer sweet peppers, pick the ones that are designed to grow in containers.

3. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are another great option for your indoor garden. It is vital to get determinate tomato plant varieties, which seem to be smaller plants but still produce some of the finest tasting tomatoes you’ll ever eat. Whether you choose cherry tomatoes or a variety large enough to slice, growing tomatoes in your rental home is reasonably easy.

4. Lettuce

Easy to grow, lettuce typically thrives in cooler weather, making it an excellent option for an indoor garden. Also, lettuce tends to grow quickly from seed, meaning you’ll be enjoying a garden-fresh salad or garnish in a couple of days.

5. Herbs

If you have minimal space capacity or want to start your indoor garden with the basics, growing herbs is an ideal choice. Many herbs need just a windowsill to thrive, and fresh herbs taste amazing in any dish. To get started, consider choosing basil, mint, or thyme in small pots or a container. Each one of these herbs is easy to grow and doesn’t take up much space.

In the end, your indoor garden can be as simple or as extravagant as you’d want – and as space will allow. However, with many incredible options, you’ll be likely to fulfill your green thumb with an indoor garden.
