Growing Fruits And Vegetables

Eating fresh fruits and vegetables has always been called a definitive part of living healthy lifestyles. That is one of the reasons that many people are starting vegetable gardens in and around their homes. Gardens also saves money on the grocery bill, and the idea of picking fresh food from a backyard garden that is planted and nurtured with your own hands makes it worth the experience.

First Lady Michelle Obama has been at the forefront of promoting healthy eating habits since she has been in the White House. One of her first projects as First Lady was starting a vegetable garden on the grounds of the White House.

Mrs. Obama has brought back the notion that gardening is good for the people and the country and that we should all roll up our sleeves and get back to the basics of growing and building things in America.

It doesn't take a lot of space to grow a garden. All it takes is a little time and effort. Not only can a backyard garden save you money, learning about soil content, the affects of sun light and the right amounts of moisture, soil composition, composting, and the many different types of plants is very educational. Growing fruits and vegetables is also good exercise and it is very relaxing.

Years ago, it was not uncommon for homeowners to plant gardens in their back yards, but as times changed. Many people turned to buying most, or all of their fruits and vegetables, from neighborhood stores and supermarkets.

Supermarkets offered such a wide variety of produce that people got away from growing their own food because they could afford to buy it.

Today, things are changing. With the economy still going through a recession, people are doing whatever it takes to make ends meet. Growing their own fruits and vegetable has become popular once again for many homeowners and renters.

Home gardens are springing up all over the country, many in major metropolitan areas, in large and small towns and cities, and anywhere there is space to grow something. In many large cities, vacant lots are being cultivated and farmed, roof tops are being turned into hot houses, and patios are being used to grow food.

In short, growing your own fruits and vegetables serve more than one purpose. It helps provide fresh food, keeps money in your pocket, gives you the opportunity to work with your hands, and gardening helps relieve stress.
