A Vegetable Garden will save $ and provide you with Healthy Food

A Vegetable Garden will save $ and provide you with Healthy Food

Growing your own Vegetable Garden can save you money and give you the peace of mind of knowing what you are putting into your body.

With recent recalls such as salmonella, E. coli and Listeria on the vegetables sold in the food industry these days I am happy that I can provide my family with our own food.Your own vegetable garden is one of the best investments you can give to yourself and your family; anyone can grow a vegetable garden whether you live in an apartment or a home with land to grow.  Vegetables do well in the ground, in containers, raised beds, greenhouses, and even mixed in your flower gardens.

Growing your own food not only saves you money at the Grocery store but it puts you in charge of what is going into your body. You decide whether you want to spray your vegetables or grow them organically.

There are many benefits to growing your own vegetable garden.  It’s also a great way to get children involved.  Have them pick a vegetable and a spot in the garden so they can learn to how to start a seed, plant it in the garden, care for it and watch it grow.  I do this every year with my grandchildren.

I’d like to share my experience and research with you so you too can enjoy the benefits of a homegrown harvest. The is nothing like walking out the door and picking a fresh tomato of the vine, or some lettuce, radishes and onions for a salad.Even in the cooler climates you don’t have to have a greenhouse to grow your vegetables even in the cooler climates; there are all kinds of crop protectors out there. I’ll let you know what I’ve tried and what has worked best for us.

Growing my own garden for years has not come without a lot of trial and error. I love to experiment with new things and that has left me surprised and disappointed at times, but at the end of every season we have a freezer full of homegrown vegetables and that makes it all worth it.
