We are all looking for ways to make our lives more sustainable and eco-friendlier. Whether it’s reducing our carbon footprint, or simply making small changes to our daily habits, there are many ways to do our part in protecting the environment.
One way to make a difference is to start growing your own vegetables and herbs. Not only does this reduce the need for buying from the grocery store, but it also helps you save money in the long run. Plus, there are plenty of vegetables you can grow vertically in small spaces, such as green beans, cucumbers, pumpkin and tomatoes. Select the smaller varieties, such as baby pumpkins or baby tomatoes, instead of larger varieties. Not only will this benefit the environment, but you’ll be able to enjoy the satisfaction of growing your own food!
Here are 4 Vegetables Perfect for Growing Vertically in Small Spaces:
1. Green Beans
Green beans are a great choice for small spaces since they are a climbing plant, meaning they can grow vertically up poles, trellises, or stakes making them a great space-saving vegetable.
Cucumbers are a great choice for small gardens as they take up very little space and can be grown in a pot or container, trellised against a wall, or planted in a small patch of ground.
Pumpkins are a great crop to grow in small spaces because they can be trained to grow along a fence or wall, or even in a large container.
Tomatoes are a great crop to grow in small spaces because they can be grown in a pot or container, or even trained to grow up and along a fence or wall.
So, what are some small changes you can make today to live a more eco-friendly and sustainable lifestyle?
