Growing a vegetable garden is a fun and rewarding experience that will give you access to fresh, homemade produce right in your backyard. Not only will this save you money (which is something we could all benefit from), but it’s also a safer and all-around healthier choice. The problem, however, is that many people have no clue where to start when it comes to growing a vegetable garden. Without any previous gardening experience, it’s easy to feel lost and confused. If this sounds like a familiar scenario, keep reading and I’ll reveal how the Womanswork Vegetable Garden Wheel can set you on the right path to growing your own vegetable garden.
Benefits of Starting a Vegetable Garden
Most of us probably don’t eat the recommended daily diet of fruits and vegetables. Depending on your size, weight and gender, you should be eating around 3-6 servings of vegetables and 2-4 servings of fruit each day. This is oftentimes nearly impossible to accomplish with the busy, fast-paced lifestyles of today’s world. The good news is that starting your own vegetable garden will make produce more readily available for you and your family to enjoy. There’s no need to make a special trip to the grocery store just to wait in some long line at the checkout for a bag of produce. Walk right into your garden, pick the ones you want, and get to cooking!
Starting your own vegetable garden also gives you the peace of mind of knowing exactly how your produce is grown. Although it may be hidden to the naked eye, most produce sold in grocery stores and supermarkets is coated with pesticides, fertilizers and other potentially harmful chemicals. Some of these chemicals wash off with soap and water, but others may soak directly into the produce. When it’s eaten, all of these chemicals then travel into your body where it can damage you from the inside out.
