You can work soil with a cooking spoon if necessary, or even a stick. No tools are necessary. You can plant directly into soil, so planters and beds are also not necessary. You can even plant below and slightly in front of a porch where you can train vining plants to grow up, or near a fence to train them to grow along it.
How do you plant a garden for $3.15?
By purchasing seed packets at a local store at a rate of 3 or 4 packets for a dollar. You will acquire 9-12 seed packets this way, and pay $3.15 cents including tax.
- Spend the first dollar-five on herbs that you’ll use in salads, cooking, and to make teas. Parsley, basil, chamomile, chives, rosemary, and/or thyme are good choices.
- Spend the second dollar-five on greens. A combination of different spinaches and lettuces are an important part of healthy meal preparation. Other greens may also be used.
- Spend the third dollar-five on other vegetables. These may be used in salads, sandwiches, and in cooking. They may also be eaten as-is for snacks. Try tomatoes, peas, beans, zucchini, and/or cucumber.
Plant as much as you can reasonably use and preserve for winter.
