Last year, I tried an experiment to see how hard it would be to grow my own plants and food. I got some supplies from Amazon… (growing medium, jar cups, and rocks) and other supplies locally… (soil, pots, etc.). It wasn’t as hard as I anticipated to start the project—but the effort came in being consistent and knowing what to do as the plants began to grow. If you travel or are out of the house a lot, and won’t have anyone to look after the plants to water or care for them, you may want to have them outside, where they can work with nature to fend for themselves.
You don’t have to “watch” the plants as much as having to “monitor” them. I chose not to initially plant anything directly in the ground because I wanted to see how hard it was to have a portable garden. Pots and planters are easy to move around and can either be grouped together or placed in certain areas according to the amount of sunlight needed.
Growing your own fruits and veggies can really be a confidence booster as well as help save on your food bill. I encourage you to explore this as a hobby and then maybe become a serious gardener. Things are changing in the world and having additional survival skills is a game changer.
As you may know, I usually don’t go into depth on my posts, but I do try to provide links or resources for you to do your own follow up or research. So, check the link below and happy planting!
