  As time goes on, we learn more about how to eat healthier and live longer.  And one of the most important parts of a healthy lifestyle is eating plenty of fruits and vegetables (especially vegetables).  Grocery stores and farmers’ markets have plenty of fresh produce available, but one of the most fun and satisfying ways to get your fill is by growing your own.

In the past, it was necessary to have a yard or other large space for a garden, but today that has changed.  Now, there are lots of options to grow fruits and vegetables in almost any space.  There are community gardens where each person gets a plot of land to plant in (or works together on the entire garden), outdoor container planting, and indoor grow lights and hydroponic setups.  All these options make growing your own food easier than ever before.

Some of the easiest species to grow when first starting out are lettuce, tomatoes, eggplant, strawberries, peppers, carrots, and beans.  These fruits and vegetables will grow well almost anywhere with very little time and effort required.  Plus there are countless online resources, like Farmers’ Almanac, that give plenty of tips and tricks for both new and seasoned gardeners.  Some of these tips include when to start your seedlings, whether to start them indoors or outdoors, when to transplant to a bigger pot, and how to acclimate young plants to colder temperatures.

You can grow your own fruits and vegetables no matter where you live.  It’s highly rewarding – especially since you get to eat the final product!
