If you want to go organic and grow your own veggies in your garden, but you do not have a large space to do it, do not fret. Container gardening is the solution. But not all vegetables would grow well if they are limited to live in a little area. Again, no worries!

Here are 7 vegetables that would still grow best even in pots and containers:


1. Eggplants

If the pot you would use, can hold up to 5 inches depth, then you can definitely plant eggplants in it. But make sure to have a stake to hold the plant in the pot.

Many people are now after the notion of eating farm-fresh produce. Primary reason would be they are grown without pesticides, so you are guaranteed they are safe for your health.

But hush now, here are 8 edible plants you can grow indoors and can be consumed once you pick them up:

1. Lettuce

Salad-lover? Well, this is for you. You can definitely plant lettuce indoors, but make sure to provide it with abundant sunlight by having a window that faces on the southern direction. You will need to have moist and well-drained soil, for it to thrive. Wait for at least 4 weeks, and they will be ready for harvesting once maturity has been reached.

You do not need to have a labor-intensive garden. Besides, if you’re late in getting your backyard ready for gardening, this is the easiest and simplest solution: square foot gardening. How to do it? Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to do this:

What’s Needed:

8 8×3 inch wood screws

8 6×1 inch wood screws

small pack of twisted nylon line

1 organic veggie seed kit

4 boards (4ft long x 10 inches width x 2 inches thick)

Step One: Prepare to build the square. 

Create a 4’x4′ square. To make it, drill the four 4ft boards together, using two 3-inch screws at each corner. Afterwards, choose a flat, sunny spot to place the box. Make sure to put cardboard or weed-blocking fabric before placing the frame on top of that.
