There are many health benefits associated with learning how to grow and harvest your own food. One of the most important benefits is that it encourages you east more fresh fruits and vegetables, which we all know is important for good health. You can also control how your vegetables and fruit are treated in terms of going the organic route or using pesticides.
We know that when vegetables are allowed to ripen naturally in a garden that are much more nutritious than store-bought vegetables which are picked early – often way too early – and this can compromise how they taste and how nutritious they are.
Anyone can learn how to grow their own fruit and vegetables. It isn’t overly difficult but it does require some time.
