Choosing to live your life on the road shouldn’t impact your green thumb. While RVing doesn’t always allow us to bring everything we own on the road with us, there is a way to make sure your garden doesn’t get left by the wayside as you embark on your adventure.
Container gardening allows gardeners to take their prized possessions with them, without having to uproot and replant. Additionally, the burden of keeping a garden in containers is much smaller than that of a full-blown outdoor garden, making container gardening perfect for both novice and expert gardeners.
If you’re looking to spice up your meals, try starting a small herb garden. Herb gardens can be grown in a windowsill and are readily available for use when you’re in the middle of a recipe. Looking for something that might bear a bit more fruit? Try out a Topsy Turvy for tomatoes, hot peppers and strawberries. These planters hang upside down and remain a fast, easy way to grow fruits and vegetables while you’re on the go. For more information visit topsygardening.com.
