More people than ever before are living in urban environments. Apartments, condominiums, spider holes stacked neatly one on top of another — just about any habitable space is being inhabited. That means that more people than ever before are no longer able to enjoy the benefits of traditional gardening. It’s difficult to walk out the back door, grab a shovel and begin rooting around in the yard when the “yard” consists of three cubic feet of poured concrete separating the high rise apartment building next door from the one in which you live. The fact that most people don’t have access to large yards or corner lots or sprawling acres in the countryside anymore doesn’t negate their innate desire to garden, of course. It only makes their desire to garden that much stronger. The gardening urge is genetically implanted in our souls. Gardening is as old an activity as modern mankind. Before ancient hunters came gardeners. Before ancient real-estate brokers came Gardeners.
In D. J. Herda’s From Container to Kitchen, he delves into how you can move from traditional outdoor gardening to benefiting from growing right in your home! Here’s an excerpt for how you can grow delicious and nutritious cabbage indoors!
