The first entry on this blog is about WHY?
First, there is nothing like picking your own vegetables from your garden, carrying them into the kitchen, and cooking them at once.
Second, if you grow your own veggies you can control what is used on them to keep them growing. I strongly encourage you to NOT buy hybrid seed. If you use heirloom seed, you can save seed from your garden and use it next year. The first year the heirloom seed it pretty expensive, for from then on, if you are careful, you will never have to pay for seed. If you use hybrid seed, you get freak veggies, and you cannot reuse the seed.
Third, you can avoid the very dangerous GMO seeds which are turning out to be rather deadly. Some GMOs actually switch on or off certain genetic processes in your body and can raise cholesterol or other such tricks. Monsanto denies it, but they have been sued in various nations for their tricks and lost the case.

So, stay near the earth, and you will live longer and healthier.
Finally, growing your own veggies will make you very popular with friends in the city who cannot grow their own garden. Share, and make friends.
Soon, I shall debut my page on the greenhouse I have built. I still have to get some photos for you so you can understand the tricks I did.
