Have you ever dreamed about owning your own lush beautiful garden? Just because you're inside for a while doesn't mean you need to push pause on your favorite hobbies.

Seeds with 'sow before 2014' on the package. And even older still. These beans were still very much alive and kicking. I planted them on March 24st. They started sprouting from day one. Nine days later (today), I planted them in a larger container as there might still be frosty nights. Let's see what happens. I bet they will produce delicious beans in a while. . #moestuinieren #containergarden #dehofhouding #gardentotable #kitchengarden #ilovemygarden #moestuin #urbangarden #allotmentgarden #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #gardeningmakesmehappy #etenuiteigentuin #ediblegarden #thehappygardeninglife #urbangardenersrepublic #harvest #versegroenten #growyourown #growyourownfood #localfood #allotmentlife #groententuin #homegrown #vegetablegarden #mijnmoestuin #happygardeninglife A post shared by Veronique De Smedt (@mrs_robinwood) on Apr 2, 2020 at 1:26pm PDT\nThe morning sun is the best, he says, since it allows the soil to warm up and stay hot throughout the day.\nIt's also important to avoid keeping your garden in low areas. This can cause drainage problems if the plant is overwatered (we've all been guilty of this at one point).\nView this post on Instagram H.A.R.V.E.S.T 🌿 Cucamelons, Eggplants, Tromboncino, Apple Gourd, Banana Peppers, Chillies and Dahlias 🌿 A post shared by @ urbanveggiepatch on Apr 2, 2020 at 1:19pm PDT\nAlong with these pro plant tips, you'll also get a 24-page downloadable booklet, so you can learn how to master your green thumb.\nView this post on Instagram Do you grow peppers 🌶 Do you grow a variety and have a favorite? This is mine, the Japanese Shishito pepper. Delicious and mild although every 1 in 10 is said to be spicy. They are so easy and prolific to grow. I had double this amount from 4 plants but half went to my parents. They grow equally well in raised beds or containers, I just use an organic tomato fertilizer on them regularly and pick them often, more often than I did here 🙈😂 My favorite way to cook them is toss them with 1-2tbsp of your favorite oil and bake them at 430° until lightly blistered. Then sprinkle with soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds. Delicious 🤤 What’s your favorite pepper to grow?

Soon, you'll be a proud plant parent in no time!\n*Cover photo and body images were used for illustrative purposes only.
