If your looking into starting a small farm or indoor garden but dont have the seeds or money, this instructable shows you how to with just a simple vegitable or fruit

Step 1: Materials

Dirt
Vegitable or fruit - I used pepers
Place to store plants

Step 2: Getting the Seeds From the Plants

To get the seeds from the vegitable you must ( assuming your using a pepper) cut right doen the middle of the pepper then you will find the core area and seeds. Then remove the seeds

Step 3: Planting the Seeds

When I did this I used dehydrated dirt capsules which when water is added you get a perfect mound of dirt. But if your not using those all you have to do is take small mounds of dirt into small containers of some sort and put 1-3 seeds in each

Step 4: Maintaining the Plants

Basically all you need to do from now is make sure the seeds get plenty of water and sunlight. And after two cycles of growing the plants from the seeds of the previous vegitable or fruit you will actually being growing the plants for free!

    When you got money to buy dehydrated dirt capsules, seeds are the least to worry.


    Also, pepper will have a very low sprout rate when not dried before.
    The downside is that you often get seeds that are not the actual fruit that you got the seeds from.

    (called grafting, like i graft my chili plants on sturdy pepper plants.)

    I like this because if you are not spending money of seeds, then you don't have to be super concerned about meticulously maintaining the garden. Anything that you get is like a free bonus prize.
