No garden? 66 Things You Can Grow at Home in Containers
Growing your own food is exciting because not only do you see that you're transforming from something to fruit and vegetables ready to eat, but you don't have to worry about the pesticides they can contain, and you'll definitely be cut off. You must travel for miles.
Apparently, anyone can be a gardener with very little effort. My boyfriend and I are actually running for the first time this season and so far we're starting to throw out strawberries, tomatoes on the way, basil ready for a big pesto party, and after the last frost, peppers, cabbage Spinach, chard and mesclun will be on the way. All on a small, small terrace.
If you can handle this challenge - and this isn't really much - it can be very useful to grow your own food. And much cheaper! Just make sure you choose the right pot or container, learn how to care properly and find yourself some seeds! (Or start plants.)
Do you like this idea? For inspiration to design your own garden in a small space, take a look at these 6 Crazy Concepts that really make it Work.
Here is the start list of the crazy things that even urban gardeners who don't have room for a garden can grow at home.
Tree fruits - including apples
1. Apples can be grown in a container; Using a technique called espaliering, you can also enlarge them on the balcony or in other small areas.
5. Blueberries (sometimes useful videos are available online)
Citrus trees in particular are said to be good for beginners to gardeners and easy to grow indoors, so don't let inexperience or lack of outdoor space prevent you from enjoying freshly picked, fresh local fruits.
10. Dwarf oranges
13. Meyer lemons
Tropical fruits are surprisingly easy to grow indoors even in non-tropical climates. As…
Almost every plant grows well indoors - if you're just sharing any pots, don't forget to research which plants live together first. (Some will, for example, shake water and leave others dried.)

6 Lawn Care Musts for Your Fall Yard
Among lawn care professionals, the best way to achieve thick, green and healthy lawn in spring is to give a well-timed care in autumn - in other words, right now. However, according to Scott Frith, CEO of Lawn Doctor, a lawn care company with more than 200 franchises nationwide, many homeowners make the same basic mistakes before they fall asleep and then cause better performance of their lawn. Wonders. . I wonder more. Here is Frith's seven-step program to get a nice lawn next year.
1. Remove the leaves.
A carpet of colorful autumn leaves can look nice and can be fun to play, but they are not good for your lawn. Blocks light and traps moisture, potentially fatal strokes for unlucky grass beneath. So as the leaves fall, blow or rake them as often as possible. Even after the trees remain bare, continue to remove the corners of the wind. If you don't do this, come on the grass at the bottom of this grassland, the rotting mat will be dead.
2. Continue cutting, but to the correct height.
Don't put that mower away yet. The grass continues to grow until the first hard frost and therefore requires regular cuts to keep it ideally 2 to 3 inches high. If you let it stay too long, it becomes dull and vulnerable to fungi such as snow mold. Cutting grass too short is equally bad because it shortens the root system - the root depth is proportional to the cutting height and prevents the ability of the lawn to withstand cold and dryness in winter. Regular mowing also gets rid of pesky leaves, cuts them and leaves behind a soil-enhancing mulch.
3. Continue watering.
Frith says people tend to stop watering in the fall as the weather gets cold. Lar They think nature will do things for them, or he says. While it is true that there is more rain, more dew and less evaporation at this time of year, this may not be enough to keep the grass roots juicy and healthy in the winter. If your lawn does not receive at least an inch of water per week - the best way to follow a simple rain gauge - then run the sprinklers or irrigation system until the end of October. Until then you will want to remove hoses and flush the irrigation system to prevent frozen pipes and plugs.
4. Loosen the soil.
According to Frith, regular ventilation - every few years, prevents the soil from being compacted and covered with thatch, and a thick layer of roots, stems and debris that prevents water, oxygen and nutrients from reaching the soil. A core aerator corrects both problems by drilling holes in that hole and pulling the earth plug up. "It is a good idea to ventilate a lawn just before fertilization," says Frith. "All these holes in your lawn will allow the manure to reach the roots that it can do best."
5. Add fertilizer.
Just as grass roots need water to last in winter, they also benefit from a shot of plant sugars that protect the roots against frost and give energy to the whole plant to spring back in the spring. These sugars are produced by chlorophyll, which is produced by the grass in abundance when there is enough nitrogen. Frith therefore recommends a slow release of the slow release granular fertilizer 24-0-10. The figures indicate the weight percent by weight of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, respectively. Potassium is also important because it helps root growth, disease protection, drought tolerance and cold resistance. (A soil test can tell you how much of your lawn really needs it.) However, be careful about spreading fertilizers near the waterways; they are vulnerable to contamination from the second stream. The Grass Doctor's company policy is to provide a 5-meter buffer wherever there is water.
6. Seed spread.
“A dense lawn also provides good protection against weeds, Fr says Frith. It is therefore important to inspect existing lawns. This not only fills fine stains or bare stains, but also allows you to get to know the last, durable, drought-resistant grass. The best time to fall is autumn, because the ground is still warm, the humidity is higher, the nights are cool and the sun is not that hot during the day. But even then, “over-seeding is one of the most challenging lawn care jobs, Fr says Frith. You cannot simply release the seeds on a lawn and wait for them to wait. They must be in full contact with the soil, remain moist until they germinate, and be sufficiently stable before very cold. Renting a split seeder is a better option than broadcasting, but these machines are notorious for tearing the lawn and making your lawn look like a rake. Frith says the Lawn Doctor's special Turf Tamer power seeder, which injects seeds into the soil, is a less damaging option.
