Benefits of a Vegetable Garden

Friday, April 10, 2020

You don't have to have a green-thumb to garden and there are many benefits to having your own garden especially your own vegetable garden. Here are some examples:
  1. Food Storage/Cheaper Produce: If you plant a $1-$2 packet of seeds, you can usually re-coop your costs by growing more than it would have cost you in a store to buy fresh produce. Plus you can easily grow "organic" produce at home. The fresh produce that you can grow can be eaten fresh, canned or frozen.  You could even store enough for future use later by using proper storage methods i.e. canning or freezing. You can find seeds on Amazon by clicking here.
  2. Working Together as a Family: It's easy to get your family involved (even small children) by planting seeds, weeding, watering and picking the fruits of your labors. My kids love to use little watering cans to water the plants. They also love picking whatever grows.
  3. Health Benefits: Spending time outside has health benefits like getting "Vitamin D" and gardening can help reduce stress and anxiety. Learn more here.
So don't be shy and start a garden today!
