A healthy diet begins with eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, and avoiding the processed ones. Unfortunately, in today’s economy many families find fresh produce to be too expensive for their budgets, especially organic varieties.
Don’t worry, you can have a healthy diet without breaking the bank. Simply start a container garden on your balcony, front porch, or in your back yard. Choose the fruits and vegetables that your family enjoys the most and learn to grow your own.
You only need a few medium to large sized plant containers and potting soil to get started. Purchase seeds for your favorite fruits and vegetables and follow the instructions on the back of the packets. Make sure you keep your plant containers elevated on a table. You can make a simple table for your container garden by placing a flat piece of wood on top of a few concrete blocks.
