8 Insanely Fast Vegetables You Can Harvest In One Month

Recommended Posts

Let’s face it: gardening can be challenging. The idea of waiting weeks and weeks for produce to be ready seems disheartening.

This is particularly true if you live in a suburban area, like I do, where the nearest grocery store is less than a quarter-mile away. If I want fresh tomatoes, the expansive produce department at my favorite store has an ever-present supply. Why go through the trouble of waiting so long for a harvest when I can simply pick up what I need at the market?

There are plenty of reasons you should be gardening, but did you know that some plants can be harvest-ready in a matter of days? Yes, days. If you struggle wondering if the effort of a garden is worth it, then planting a few of these fast-growers gives you (almost) immediate results and can help you hold on through the long days of waiting for harvest.

I saw some premade self watering containers, man are they ever expensive!  This looks like a great alternative.

Got mine from a guy that works at a commercial bakery,had cake filling in them.2 dollars apiece,cant beat that.had the pipe left over from hoophouse construction.So out of pocket was 4 dollars each for buckets ,and 2 dollars each in potting soil.So I got 20 planters for 120 dollars,plus what the pipe costs.I used 5 sections of 10 foot,1.5 inch pvc.Hose nozzle fits in perfectly.

Nice! I know someone who uses self watering ones, she grew a monster cabbage in one. I guess you can put just about anything in there.
