The idea of growing your own food may seem impoverished or archaic, however that couldn’t be further from the truth. Hip and conscientious citizens have begun growing their own foods, primarily vegetables, like never before.
Why are people growing their own food? The reasons are simple. First, in case you haven’t noticed, the price of fresh vegetables now rivals fresh meats and cheeses as being the priciest part of your families meals. With the increasing pressure regarding undocumented labor in the USA, these prices are only likely to continue to increase. Another force driving folks to small scale farming is the preservatives and other chemicals used in the mass production of food. These additives may be linked to negative health effects and it’s clear that avoiding them is your best bet.
