Reasons to Grow Your Own Food in Your Backyard

There are many positive reasons why you should grow your own vegetables! Yes, a food garden can be hard work, but the payoff is just as rewarding! Let’s enumerate five:

Sunshine and exercise

While growing your own vegetables in your garden can be labor-intensive, the rewards far outweigh the cons of this enjoyable hobby. You get to work with your hands and get a daily dose of vitamin D! The satisfaction of growing your own vegetables is a great landscaping idea to make use of your spare time.

An abundance of fresh produce

When we do our shopping for produce in the grocery store, we are not guaranteed of its freshness. Harvesting from your own garden can guarantee the freshness of your own produce and you can be sure that it is organic and pesticide free!

More for less

Home-grown vegetables taste best especially when you take the time to choose the right plant for your garden. You’ll be able to save cost on your landscaping too since growing your own produce also helps maintain a healthy soil.

Tips in Gardening and Landscaping

Choose the perfect space for your garden

You don’t have to be too ambitious when starting your own vegetable garden. One of the most common errors that beginners make is planting too much, btoo soon. Start small, and only grow what you know you and your family will eat.

Know your seasons

Most vegetables are seasonal; they reach maturity or bear fruits at particular times of the year. Good gardening involves a bit of research and forward planning, so get yourself a diary or calendar and pencil in the times to ensure a good harvest.

Enrich your soil

Lastly, a simple “squeeze test” will quickly tell your soil’s composition. It will also help determine whether you’ll need to add anything to the soil before you start sowing your crops. Mix in plenty of organic matter to help your plants grow! A healthy soil means a healthy harvest!
