25 How does your garden grow?


Growing and maintaining a backyard or community garden not only provides you with a physical outdoor activity, but will cull an interest in how food is grown and may inspire you to make better decisions about what goes on your dinner plates. There is a wealth of information available on how (and when) to grow certain fruits and vegetables. Start with plants you know you’ll eat that are relatively easy to grow (tomatoes, lettuces, peppers) and wait for that sense of pride and excitement you’ll feel when you’re eating a plant you nurtured. Note: Herb gardens can be easy to maintain inside if you lack outdoor space.
