One man's cheap and organic alternative to fancy store-bought grow bags.

 

In the Bag
Cauliflower and tomatoes grown in plastic bags.

One man's cheap and organic alternative to fancy store-bought grow bags.

Take a plastic bag.
Fill it with soil.

Scatter some seeds.
Water.

Seedlings sprout.
Let them grow.
They become bigger.

Cover the soil with:
Fruit peels.
Uncooked vegetable waste.
Tea and coffee grounds.

Water when the plant asks for water.
It won't ask often.

Will it grow into a plant?
Will it flower?
Will it fruit?

It did for me.
