In this day and age when every penny counts, growing your own fruit and vegetables at home is a wonderful idea and means you have fresh, healthy and delicious produce on your door stop. However, one of the big stumbling points for many people is a lack of space. Growing vegetables in the ground requires a lot of space, even for a small crop, but if you grow them in containers you can grow a lot more.
Growing your own food at home is a great way to get your own fresh produce that is very tasty and good for you. Home grown produce does not have any of the chemicals in that produce from the supermarket has. It is grown and ripened naturally (unlike store bought vegetables) which means your own home
grown produce is packed full of nutrients and flavor.
You will find that many children who refuse to eat their vegetables will happily eat those you grow at home because they taste so much better. Plus if you have children then a container garden is great for them because it is easy to maintain and fun to look after.
