Simple Gardening Tips for Your RV Lifestyle

6-16-2015-SimpleGardeningTipsRV

It’s National Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, and there’s no better way to ensure your produce is fresh than to grow it yourself. Although, the thought of growing fresh fruits and vegetables in your RV may seem impossible.

These simply tips for gardening on the go will help you continue your hobby and healthy lifestyle when you’re on the road.

Grow Tomatoes on the Road

You don’t have to give up your annual tomato crop just because you’re living an RV lifestyle. Special gardening tools, like the Topsy Turvy Planter, help you grow your favorite crops in tight spaces. The Topsy Turvy Planter allows your plants to grow upside down while they hang in any compact space. Simply move your Topsy Turvy Planter outside when you arrive at the campsite, and you’ll enjoy the benefits of a mobile garden.

Get Creative with Potters

You don’t have to spend a fortune on nifty gardening gadgets to enjoy your favorite fruits and vegetables on the go. Many RV enthusiasts already use shoe organizers as a way to keep products in order in their RVs. Those same shoe organizers work perfectly as hanging pots. Each small pocket serves as a pot for your favorite herbs, flowers and vegetables. Hang the organizer inside your RV when you hit the road, then move it back outside when you arrive at your destination.

Consider an Earth Box

The Earth Box is a new product to hit the market for gardeners who live in small spaces. It’s a little less mobile than hanging planters, but at just 2.5-feet long and 15-inches wide, it doesn’t take up much space in your RV when you’re traveling. The Earth Box is a simply growing system with the layering of a fertilizer band, potting mix, aeration screen and self-watering system to optimize your plant growth in small spaces. Move it outside of your RV when you park, and you’ll enjoy fresh produce on the go.
