2. Bell Peppers

Most bell peppers are a dollar apiece but you can grow them for a fraction of the cost! Like tomatoes, although you can grow them from seed, many people find it’s easier to buy a few seedlings.

Peppers need warmth to grow so it’s best to wait until late spring and plant them in a warm, sunny area. Add fertilizer or compost to the soil about 7-10 days after planting.

Peppers also like water, so be sure to water them deeply enough.

The longer bell peppers stay on the plant the sweeter they will taste. Use a knife or a sharp pair of garden shears to remove the hard stem from the plant.
