Have you thought about growing your own food before? Consider starting your own kitchen garden this spring as an environmentally friendly way to add fresh produce to your daily meals.
Kitchen gardens are separate spaces dedicated to the growing of vegetables and fruits instead of ornamental plants. Kitchen gardens are by no means a new concept. In fact, they have been around for centuries. They can be large or small, in the ground or in a container. When done to a specific design, a kitchen garden can provide you with fresh food and herbs every season of the year.
It doesn’t take a huge plot of land to get started with a kitchen garden. Grab one of these books and with a little soil, sun, water, and patience, you can enjoy your own harvest every month of the year.
