Urban Gardening: A Starting Guide

Following up on yesterdays post about greening your garden I bring you today’s post about urban gardening. If you’ve ever wanted to garden in or on your urban dwelling Inhabitat has a starter guide to urban gardening.

When choosing seeds, consider growing a bunch of herbs in a pot together. As for vegetables, almost everything will grow in a container. Leafy greens (chard, kale, collards) are one of the healthiest options with the most nutrients for your buck, but you can also try out tomatoes, lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, carrots and onions. For a little color, calendula and johnny jump-ups (violas) can be planted next to the vegetables and their petals are delicious sprinkled over a salad.

  1. Hey old Roomie!
    I was watching the news yesterday and I was getting so frustrated by all the negativity and fear that is instilled on every news station. I got to thinking how it would be so great to listen to a news station where all news was good news. Then, I remembered your website. I’m so happy to see it is still up and running. I promise to become an avid follower and pass on the website to my Aussie Mates! I hope all is well in TO. What are your plans this summer? I’m planning a visit home sometime late July.
    Thanks for passing on happy, useful news. I would love to hear an update from you on the life of Adam:)
