Not everyone has the luxury of living where they are able to plant a garden. I live in a 12-story apartment building a few blocks from the U.S. Capitol building and don’t have one blade of grass to call my own. But that doesn’t mean my green thumb has to whither up and die. City living still provides plenty of opportunities to get your hands in the dirt, and watch something grow.
Growing your own herbs is another great way to garden when living in a city – and then use the fruit of your labor for delicious dishes and save money, too. Basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and mint are some of my favorite to grow and use – especially in the fall and winter!
Exotic or Unusual Plants
If you live in a city I hope this gives you hope that you don’t have to give up gardening just because you don’t have any land. And if you don’t live in a city, these are great additions to your home, too!
What plants do you grow indoors? Has anyone ever worked in a community garden?
