Prepare to get your opinion changed if you believe you can't grow your own food because you live in a community, don't have a yard, or don't have enough room. Urbanites and apartment dwellers will participate in the grow-your-own-food revolution thanks to container gardening, which allows them to do so even though they have limited rooms. However, jar planting encompasses far more than cherry tomatoes and spices in coffee cans. Here are ten unexpected crops you can grow at home — no greenhouse needed! — from a bountiful harvest of strawberries to guacamole-ready avocados.

Radishes:

Radishes are extremely simple to cultivate, sprout quickly, and are ready to eat in just four to five weeks. When choosing a container for growing your radishes, the website Quarto Knows suggests choosing a "narrow, rectangular pot to imitate the way that radishes will grow in the field." Since they need to be at least a few inches apart for proper growth, placing them in a long container would result in a pleasant row that is also visually appealing.”

Jalapeno Peppers:

Smaller chili peppers are the best peppers to thrive in pots, making them suitable for those trying to add a little spice to their recipes. They flourish indoors and can grow fruit for up to five years if properly cared for.

Peas:

Freshly selected peas are one of the most delectable flavors. My daughters love eating them right from the pods, but providing a year-round supply will be perfect. And, happily, it's likely the Empress of Dirt unintentionally learned how well peas grow indoors.

Salad Greens:

Salad greens are definitely the simplest and fastest to develop in your cramped quarters. According to Gardener's Supply Firm, your salad greens container garden should be installed in a sunny window, preferably one that faces south. The business sells a cute and useful Mobile Salad Garden cart. You might also roll it out onto a deck or patio since it is on wheels.

Green Beans:

Green beans are a yummy, healthy and easy veggie to grow in a container. When purchasing your seeds, remember there are two main plant types. There are beans that grow as vines and bush beans. For indoors, the bush beans will take up less room and do better in containers. Another consideration is lighting green beans need at least six hours of sunlight every day. If that’s not an option in your space, a grow light would work as well.

Cucumbers:

Cucumbers can be grown indoors to maintain a constant supply of cucumbers. To remain safe, they need lots of water and exposure to the sun. Often, keep an eye out for types that are best suited to bins.“While most cucumber varieties grow well in containers, bush cucumber varieties are designed for compact plants, and are less rangy on decks and in small-space gardens.

Carrots:

Carrots are high in vitamin A, fiber, and alpha and beta carotenes, among other nutrients. It's not just the root that's edible; the fern-like foliage is as well. Carrots thrive in full sun and light, sandy soil.
