Vegetable Gardening

Vegetable gardening and growing your own vegetables in general is actually pretty easy, and it’s inexpensive if you start your plants from seeds.

You might be wondering why you should grow your own vegetables? Here are a few reasons to motivate you:

Save Money: avoid paying the skyrocketing costs of produce in the grocery store.

Autonomy: get control over your own food supply and be able to supply food for your family without depending on someone else.

Health: avoid the potential for exposure to harmful pesticides and bacterial outbreaks.

Vegetable gardening: Grape tomatoes

Fun: experience the joy of creating living food with your own hands, and the wonder of seeing nature in action.

Variety: enjoy a wide variety of vegetables, herbs and fruit at much lower costs. For instance, the grape tomatoes in the picture are called Juliettes, and they are delicious!

Given all the positives, I believe growing your own vegetables is worth the time and effort expended. All you really need is some seeds, some soil, sunshine, water and air. Even if you have no yard, you can still grow many different types of vegetables in a container on your porch.

However, to make the gardening experience more fruitful, it helps to have the following supplies and information. Click on the links below to see the information about that topic.

Gardening is a wonderful experience, and I encourage you to give it a try, even if you only grow one tomato plant in a 5 gallon bucket.
