The "Living with the Land" attraction at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park is a 14-minute boat ride that teaches visitors about agriculture around the world. During the ride, park guests sail through experimental greenhouses to see some of the produce grown for the Epcot restaurants, as well as new and different ways to grow our favorite garden plants, including bananas, tomatoes, sunflowers, pumpkins, lettuce and more.
Many container garden plants can be propagated with leaf cuttings. Some plants can reproduce with just one leaf, such as African violets. Cut a healthy leaf and a short piece of its stem off the mother plant. Dip the cutting in rooting hormone and place the stem into moist propagation media. Spray the plant leaf frequently and cover the leaf with clear plastic.
You can make a delicious salsa from a small balcony garden. Nothing tastes better than fresh ingredients picked right from the kitchen garden, prepared and eaten less than 5 minutes later! The best part is that you can make your salsa your own. Make it super spicy or super mild, add as much garlic or onion as you want, and you can prepare it and make it fresh throughout the gardening season. So why not devote a corner of your garden to a salsa garden?
If you’re one of the apartment gardeners who does not have enough light outside to grow sun-loving plants, you may want to try growing plants indoors. You can also start seeds indoors and move their containers outside once they are established.
