Izay Ayesha recommends some productive indoor activity Growing food
Growing food Slowly and gradually the virtues of spending more time indoors, particularly at home are increasing. Many people are taking up cooking and they try preparing new dishes. In this scenario it would be very beneficial if efforts are made to grow one’s own produce as many vegetables are easy to grow. These vegetables do not require large spaces to grow and are easy to plant. This job could also be undertaken by apartment dwellers as many vegetables could be grown indoors.
Rhubarb is so easy to grow it can quickly take over your garden if you aren’t careful! The plant is very large so it is best grown in a plot. The tart taste of rhubarb is great as a jam, made into a sauce or used as a pie filling.
Garlic can be grown indoors, on a balcony or in a plot. All you need to do is plant the individual garlic cloves a few centimeters apart in moist soil. When the foliage at the top starts to die then they are ready to be harvested.
Lettuce can be grown indoors in a small pot or outdoors either on a balcony or in a garden. It is easily grown from seed, and you can pick leaves off as you need them. Please don’t waste money on flavourless supermarket salad greens! Try your hand at growing your own – it is so easy!
Spinach could be grown easily. In case you haven’t noticed a trend yet, it is very simple to grow your own greens! Spinach is cultivated similarly to Swiss chard and kale. For faster results, purchase seedlings, but if you have the time and a tighter budget, opt for seeds.
Onions are very inexpensive to purchase, it is very satisfying to grow your own. Pick up some bulbs from your local nursery and plant them in moist soil. They also can be grown on a balcony and are quite low maintenance. Onions take a long time to grow to a decent size but being able to step out to your garden and pull up a fresh onion is worth it. TW
