If the pandemic has shown us anything, it's that more households need to begin to be reliant on having their own food supply at home. Growing vegetables is not only a fun activity to occupy your mind from the pandemic, but it is an easy way to bring in extra food source to your house.
To grow any herbs or vegetables, the area that you're going to be setting these guys in is going to have to take full sun. Without it, it'll be very hard to produce anything edible enough for you to really enjoy. First, you'll need some type of container that has a drainage hole, this is because if you get something that doesn't, when you water, the water will just sit in the container and you'll end up giving it more water than it needs, resulting in unwanted diseases. Next, you're going to want to plant them in organic potting soil. You don't want to end up consuming anything that is high in chemicals as that's harmful for your body as well. You could also add some natural fertilizers such as liquid seaweed, bone meal, or worm castings (yes, this is worm poop.) Finally, be sure to water these guys after planting. You don't want to water every day but transition to doing it every other day now that we're slowly creeping into that hot, Texas weather. It's best to water between six to ten in the morning that way the plant has all day to dry out. If you see that your plants are drooping, give it a little bit of watering to perk that guy back up. It's honestly going to feel so good when your hard work pays off when you decide to go out to your patio and cut pieces of your cilantro off to take back in the kitchen and add to your favorite dish!
