I was walking in Alphabet City today and noticed someone was growing bell peppers in a small plot of dirt in front of a building where you usually would expect to see hedge plants. With the financial market in such turmoil and the economy in contraction mode I think now is the perfect time to save yourself some money grow your own food. Start small, one plant in a five gallon pot is all you need. For the most bang for your buck I would recommend starting with a cherry tomato plant. One plant can supply you with pints and pints of fruit for the entire summer.
