We at Karuna nursery can’t help stress how just a little bit of home gardening can change your life and your families life for the better. Having your very own home garden in which you harvest your own produce can be a deeply fulfilling experience. Let’s look at some of the advantages of home gardening.
Getting out there in the sun is good for you. The most important nutrient gardening can give you before you even take a bite of your produce is vitamin D. These sun rays promote vitamin D production in you body, which is vital to our health and your families. Even the little bit of tending a backyard garden for about 30 minutes daily can promote better sleep and positive energy. But hey, fair warning, don’t skimp out on the sunscreen.
Save loads of money
With grocery prices picking up because of inflation, you have a huge home ground advantage if you grow your own produce. Economically the biggest advantages of growing your own food are that it can save you money. Did you know that the price of a pack of seeds is almost equivalent to what you would pay for a single vegetable or fruit at the store? Think about it! It might even cost less when you factor in the money spent on the gas used to drive to the supermarket. Don’t forget the fact that you can grow organic vegetables for a fraction of what they retail for in a store. Just take a deep breath and take the food costs into consideration. Now gardening can become an appealing option to cut back on your grocery bill.
Fresh & Organic
With all these hipster organic shops opening up on every corner, this vegan lifestyle has become somewhat of a fad. There is nothing in the world that can beat the flavor-and-nutrient-packed power of fresh-picked fruits and vegetables. Once the harvesting is all done, your produce begins to lose moisture and nutrients. The vegetables in your regular grocery store are not reliable. The freshness of your vegetables is largely out of your control. How about when you’ve grown your own fruits and vegetables, you can know exactly when they’ve been picked and how fresh they are.
We all know that gardening can be a really fun, family-friendly activity that allows kids to get their hands dirty and learn where their food comes from. Of course, if your kids are as mischevious as mine, you’re going to end up with a food fight on your hands, but it’s fun never the less. From planting seedlings to building salads together, starting a vegetable garden is a great way to get your family off the couch and onto their feet, and that is something this generation of kids desperately need. So shove them iPads away and let’s get those thumbs dirty.
