Who says that you need tons of space to grow your own food? With a little know-how, you can grow many things in a confined to small spaces — city apartments, college dorms, and suburban kitchens. You can use an easily accessible windowsill as a starter garden. It’ll keep you aware of what’s going on and act as a constant reminder of when to water and prune and use, i.e. eat, your plants. To get you started, you’ll need some starter supplies. Go in for some quality organic potting mix, which is airier than soil because it includes special components, such as coconut coir, to make it so. Find some containers, or even better, make them from upcycled materials, such as tin cans, plastic bottles or wine bottles. Then, choose a sunny windowsill, one that is passed often. The kitchen window tends to be best because it is near the water tap as well as is right where the cooking is done. Then, it’s all about choosing the right plants.
