Robert Works tips on alternatives to planters for indoor gardening in New Haven, CT

Hi… My name is Robert Works. In this post I am talking about how to grow a plant without a planter. Living in New Haven CT as I do, and living in an apartment, I don’t have a garden outside. however, I do have plants growing inside my apartment. In my last post I talked about going to a garden center and getting everything you need to start growing vegetables in your apartment. However, I know money is very tight today and I know some of those planters are very expensive. I’m here to tell you not to worry. you don’t need a planter to grow your own vegetables, you can use things that would usually go into the trash such as milk jugs. What you do is cut the top half off, fill the bottom half with soil, put in your seeds. water. then put it in a window sill with sunlight and watch it grow! Another item you can use is an old aluminum baking tin. instead of throwing them out fill it with soil, add some seeds, place in the window sill and your getting more independent! I would like to thank all of you who read this post and liked it and i hope you start your own indoor gardens. My parents made a living as sheep farmers for the last 15 years, they always had a garden in their yard that produced food just for themselves. They had fun gardening, I am finding that gardening in my apartment is also fun and delicious. My father always said frugality is very important,. there is nothing more frugal than growing your own produce.
