Growing veggies and fruits at home (part I)

The thought of growing vegetables and fruits at home, in our balconies or mini gardens, may seem overwhelming, however it has a handful positive aspects to consider.

Apart from being very simple and straightforward, it can bring other benefits such as saving money on groceries, it’s a therapeutic activity, it could improve health due to freshness of ingredients and reduction of stress, it’s eco-friendly, and... it’s organic!



Tomatoes

Depending on the variety, tomatoes can grow with ease in almost any sized container.

The plant will develop its roots along the buried part of its stem, establishing a robust root system. Therefore the deeper it’s planted, the better.

Good drainage is mandatory as well as sun exposure. Tomatoes have an average of 95% water, therefore watering consistently the soil is also important for their growth.
