This kind of gardening is up by more than 171% this year, which explains the gaining popularity of the concept.

The benefits of organic gardening are many and widespread which is the major reason for its spreading popularity far and wide. One of the main reasons for the popularity of this backyard gardening is health. No matter which grocery store you choose to visit, you will never get the healthiest and freshest of all vegetables and when you have your own garden at home all you need to do is pluck the vegetables and eat.

Your backyard garden produce is certainly going to be more nutritious and healthier as it will never be at any risk from exposure to different pesticides, agricultural chemicals, additives or even food colors which are often used to enhance the color of vegetables, without you, the consumer, even knowing about it. With your own organic garden, you are at no risk and completely assured of getting complete nutritional value from all vegetables you grow in your garden.

With your own vegetable garden at home you no longer have to depend on your local grocer to buy fresh vegetables.

Whether you are searching for ways to become healthier, or just a new hobby for you and your kids, this should be on your list of things to try out; it’s fun, rewarding, and healthy.

  1. I have noticed for the past few years that tomato skins are tougher. I’m convinced the government is involved…HA HA! Seriously, the tomato plants (even heirloom Cherokee Purple) purchased for my garden are tough skinned and I did hear that seeds have been altered. I sure hope your seeds so not fall into that category. I am looking forward to trying your seeds next spring in the hopes of starting my own plants will alleviate this problem! Can unused seeds be kept in the fridge to use the following season? Thanks!

    1. The government is involved! 95% of product in your grocery store in genetically modified. There’s almost no way to avoid it except to plant your own veggies! None of our seeds are GMO and are all heirloom. No genetic altering at all in the growing of these seeds! 😉 You can store unused seeds in a cool, dry place for a decent amount of time. They last longer if it is an airtight seal but be sure to NEVER freeze them.
