Everyone has time for a small garden, even you. The trick is to start small and have a source of good information for beginners. Now you can go to your nearest home supply store and buy a container with some soil and seeds and you are ready to get started. You can find everything you need to know by searching the internet for home gardening for beginners. Here are some things to consider if you want to start a garden.
Nothing tastes better than a ripe tomato picked fresh from the garden. The tomatoes we purchase in the stores are mass produced with no regards for taste. I can still remember the first tomato (Tiny Tim) I ate out of my first garden. By planting a home garden this spring you will be able to find out what a real tomato tastes like.
Tired of seeing your family members sit in front of a video game or TV? Maybe planting a small home garden will get your children outside in the fresh air and get their hands into some dirt for a change. “Families that garden together grow together.” Even young children enjoy having a garden section they can call their own. I know as a child I still remember going to the garden store to pick out tomato plants for my section of the garden. Working and learning outside as a family is a great experience that that will last a lifetime.
If you have a stressful job or life you might want to consider planting a garden this spring. There is no better way to forget about your problems than working out in nature. You will get lost in the wonder of nature and unwind from the stress of your life. The exercise will also be good for you. Although, if you are new at this I would start with a small garden so you do not over commit for time and physical commitment. Gardening can be cheaper than paying mental health professional.
I believe the US food supply is relatively safe after working in the agriculture industry for many years. It is very satisfying to know exactly what was involved in the production of your food. I know many families that have special needs children who are responding well to organically grown foods. Obesity has become a major concern for both adults and children. Most nutrition experts are encouraging an increase in everyone’s consumption of fruits and vegetables. Fresh produce from your garden encourage a vegetable friendly menu.
Now is the time to start thinking about raising a garden this spring. You can get outside with the family or maybe get outside away from your family to raise your own bright red juicy tomato that tastes like a tomato. Your completely safe nutritious vegetables will also provide you with a relaxing hobby that will allow you to learn new things.
