Fresh Food In Your Garden

When we see the 'Little House on the Prairie', we can recall the time when there was no grocery store to carry the vegetables from. Life was very difficult at that times when one has to grow food himself for his family.

This would be like plowing the garden for growing plants and working with the team of horses. Tired from such hard work, a person normally fell asleep early after the dinner.

It was very tough job. One has to work hard and had to gather the enough amount of food for saving himself and his family from starving during the winter season.

But know our life has become so much easy. We can easily get the vegetables and fruits from the grocery store at the cheap prices. If we grow the food ourselves it would cost us more than buying it from nearest grocery store.

Most of us buy the food from the grocery stores because they are affordable. But some people have X and Y personal reasons to grow their own garden.

Growing your own garden has many benefits. Working hard in your garden will give you experience and it will teach you tricks and give you tips which later on you can pass it on your children.

Initial cost for establishing the garden is high, but you can grow the food all along the year. You can also preserve the food for the winter season. In the end you will find your garden repaying you in form of fresh and clean vegetables and fruits.

Seeds and plants are expensive to acquire. So you can save the seeds from the vegetables and make it grow next year, rather than buying the new seeds. By this way you can save your money.
