There are several good reasons to grow a garden.
I think the one that is the biggest concern to most people is the fact that it will save you so much money.For an investment of about $50 your garden will produce $700-$800 worth of food.That is money you won’t have to spend at the grocery store.
A lot of your produce you can store, freeze, or can so you are saving that money year round, not just during the growing season.
The next reason for growing a garden is freshness. Who knows when that tomato or pepper was picked and how long it rode on a truck to get to your store? If you grow your own, you will always know. You can’t get much fresher than wanting something for supper and going out and picking it. Ten minutes later you are enjoying some extremely fresh vegetables.
You know exactly what fertilizer was used to grow your food, and how much. Isn’t it great to know what chemicals, if any, were used?
There are times you want a certain kind of vegetable and you can’t find it in the store. So your only option is to grow them yourself.
You get such satisfaction from growing your food yourself. It takes some time and work, but in the end it is so worth it.When you are enjoying your corn on the cob with fresh tomatoes and baby potatoes, you are going to be so glad that you took the time to grow them.
There is nothing like the taste of home grown vegetables.
So, with all these reasons: money saved,freshness, being able to control what is used to grow it, what kind you grow, and the satisfaction of doing it yourself, why wouldn’t you grow your own garden?
