1. Salad greens
Being one of the least fussy plants to grow, lettuce and other salad greens grow quickly, are easy to harvest and packed with nutrients. Best of all, you can easily grow a wide variety of greens in containers, requiring very little space.
In most regions, lettuce and other greens grow best in the spring and fall (as they are what’s known as a cool-season crop). When planting seeds, make sure that the soil is well-drained and loose. Also, about one week before you seed or transplant, add organic matter to the soil. Learn more here.
