Why I Started My Own Organic GardenEmail this post to a friend.
Planting an organic vegetable garden is an easy, rewarding hobby that anyone can do.
Have you ever bitten into the center of your favorite garden veggie, and wondered where it came from? Did they take care of the soil? Is this really organic? If you have any sort of active imagination these questions can really start to scare you.
Recalls are scary too. Remember the spinach scare last year? Let’s face it, if you eat vegetables, in any quantity, a garden should be the center of your plans. Not only does it feel great to be self-sufficient, but it saves money.
While I have been tending to a flower garden for many years, I am a rookie when it comes to vegetables. So far, I have found that a vegetable garden is much more fun primarily because you get to eat your results.
I decided to plant a vegetable garden after a recent trip to the grocery store.
All the vegetables were brightly colored and looked delicious,
But I found that the store bought vegetables had no flavor!
The tomatoes, the broccoli, the carrots, all of them had NO FLAVOR WHATSOEVER!
Maybe its because everything has been so genetically altered we’ve forgotten how a good tomato is suppose to taste.
Maybe its all the pesticides that are sprayed to keep bugs away.
Whatever the reason, the more I though about it, the more disgusted I became.
I wanted my own fresh, organic veggies.
So, I decided I’m not going to take it anymore, I started my own garden, and I’ve never been happier.
I set-up this blog to share some of the stories, gardening strategies, tips and tricks for better growing, and other organic garden related information with everyone.
