Not only have we started destroying the Earth by planting and farming using different herbicides and pesticides, but we have also been destroying our organisms. Natural is always the best option, but as people have become greedy and impatient, nobody really lives by this rule anymore. We want plants that do not grow in our areas, and we want them fast, so what we do is treat them with numerous chemicals to enable and hasten their growth.
But try to avoid growing what cannot survive in this climate, and if you are in desperate need for full-grown plants, here we have a couple of advices for you on which food can you grow in a jiffy, but in a completely natural, organic way.
Even if you do not have big garden, you should not skip on growing your own food. All you need are containers, preferably bigger than the plants might seem to need, and fine-textured soilless mix of peat moss and perlite, where you will plant your seeds. Because there is lack of space, you might want to consider skipping on flowers, and using each and every pot to grow your own food.
All Natural Vegetables
There are some, like peas, beet greens and sunflowers that can be fully-grown in only 20 days if you put them in a place where there is always sun. Also make sure that the temperature of the soil the seed is in is about 60 degrees, and you will notice first sprouts after only a week. A couple of days later, these microgreenes can be trimmed and ready to eat. Also, contender bush beans, and sugar Ann snap peas can be grown in just a bit more than a month, as well as Sprouting broccoli, that will be ready to find its place on your plate in 50 days after planting it.
Ready to Eat
To really go green, consider growing food that does not require any additional preparation, but can be harvested, washed, and ready to eat. Lettuce is one of them, and these high temperatures are what they need to grow fast, and as it has shallow root, it is easy to grow in a pot. Tomato can be problematic to grow, if you wish to grow it in under two months, but there is a special kind, glacier tomatoes, that can survive even in lower temperatures, and grow to about 4 inches in 50 days. Just do not let them freeze, as then they will disappear much faster than they appeared. Once they are big, red, and fresh, you can wash them and eat like apples, as naturally grown ones taste sweeter and juicer.
By growing your own food, you always know what you eat, and you can be sure that it is completely healthy. So do not be lazy, and do not be impatient, but get the seeds that you know will grow fast, plant them and let them grow their own pace, and you will have food on your plate in less then 60 days.
