Thousands of home gardeners around the USA are demonstrating that they can grow an amazing amount of healthy and delicious vegetable bounty in their own backyards
The best reason to grow your own vegetables is because it is healthier: the gardener controls what goes on and in the crop, plus convenience doesn't get any easier than walking 15 feet from the garden to the kitchen.
There’s not only less of it to purchase, but the price can range to nearly nonexistent if you receive some as gifts, hit garage sales, Freecycle.com, or Craig’s List ads. I must add in the advantage of free physical exercise as the garden is tended.

then come inside and create beautiful arrangements
any time I like.
A fair share of crops can also be grown on decks, balconies or window boxes. There's even upside down tomato plant grower so small spaces can take advantage of every square inch.
