There is no breakdown of the national food chain to prompt these victory gardens. But instead, they’re trending to help limit trips to the grocery store and bring a little light and exercise to those who have extra time during shelter-in-place and stay-at-home orders. “Planting your own garden is perfect timing right now, because the weather is getting better all over the country, and you can even sow some seeds inside and then transplant them to the ground later on,” Susan Brandt, president of Blooming Secrets, told realtor.com®. “You can definitely use containers, a windowsill, or even grow bags, which are another type of container, if your space is limited. And if you have a balcony or access to a roof, try growing them there.”

Brandt says some of the quickest plants to grow include leafy greens like arugula, bok choy, and Swiss chard, as well as zucchini, cucumbers, and many herbs like thyme, oregano, chives, and parsley.
