Growing your own food is a fun way to save money and get you (and your kids!) eating healthier. No room for a lush garden in your backyard? Or no backyard at all? Don't let that keep you from planting! "Container gardens" are easy to care for and work in just about any space. Follow these steps to get started:
1. Pick your plant.
2. Pick your container. It could be a jar, can, or milk carton!
3. Add drainage.
4. Add the plant + potting soil to your container.
5. Pick a sunny spot near a window or outside, and enjoy!
Here are a few recipes to make with your home-grown fruits, veggies, or herbs!
