Growing your own veggies in an apartment
About two years ago I started to think about growing my own veggies. I wondered how much it would cost? How much stuff do I need? Will this work?
Well, about two days ago I stopped thinking and decided to try. Before that, I asked for some tips from my amazing friend Shelly. She gave me some good advice, and I got excited about having my little baby plants. We went to Fred Meyer supermarket near our apartment and chose herbs and spinach as a start.
Here is my list and prices:
Spinach seeds: $1.79
2 clay pots: $1.34 each
2 planters: $2.09 each
Organic potting soil: $4.99
Organic fertilizer: $5.99
I got home and started to move them to bigger pots right away I was happy to do that. If they do fine and everything works well I will be growing more veggies in the future.
Its been 3 days now since I got my plants and I can stop look at them to see if they are okay and if they are growing or not…haha. I know is to early but I can’t wait to see if they will be delicious in my food or not. And I had so much fun doing it because it reminds me of when I lived on the farm and we grew all of our own food and made our own stuff. We never had to go to supermarket because we had everything at home.
Any special tip about my plants will be appreciated. And I will update about their future on my balcony 🙂
