Learn how to “grow half of your own food” with sustainable, organic methods that can be practiced anywhere
By Florence Garrington
Is there anything better than chowing down on food grown in your own backyard? Homegrown produce has distinct flavors that simply can’t be beaten by the fruits and vegetables sold in the grocery. That isn’t just satisfaction you’re tasting—you’re also savoring unmatched food safety and security.
When you grow your own food, you control what does and doesn’t go into it. This means that you’re sure that your produce has no harmful pesticides and dangerous chemicals. If you love potatoes, peppers, or tomatoes, then you should definitely consider raising your own since these tend to have the highest pesticide loads.
Do you know that growing your own gardens saves you money as well? After all, you won’t have to spend a lot of time or money shopping for your favorite greens when you can just step outside. Nor will you have to worry about the risk of your fruits or vegetables containing disease-spreading bacteria.
The only downside to this that you’ll have to pour in a lot of time and effort into high-quality homegrown produce.
Or so it seems.
You can grow half of what you eat in less than an hour every day — and you don’t even need a lot of space for it.
