If you have a small yard, you may think you don’t have enough space to grow food, but a small garden plot can produce significant food.
For example many vegetables are easy to grow in containers on your porch or balcony. Besides your own freshly picked vegetables/fruits will taste much better, and still contain the maximum amount of flavor and nutrients.
It’s also a pleasant moment with great benefits such as taking advantage of the fresh air, some sunshine and getting the most moderate exercise out of gardening which is healthy. It has actually been clinically proven to help alleviate stress.
Backyard gardens usually bring neighbors together. The perfect time to "Chit Chat" over the garden fence, share experiences, knowledge and some fresh produce.
