Want to plant a garden, but don't have much space? Container gardens can be budget- and space-friendly, while providing a bountiful harvest.
Most of the fruits and vegetables in your grocery store have traveled thousands of miles to reach you. In fact, the average plate full of food on an American table travels 1500 miles on average before being eaten.
In order to survive the journey, they’ve been sprayed and bred to withstand bumps, drops, and extra-long transit times. One of the side effects of this is they taste nothing like they should. The more out of season your fruit or vegetable is for your geographic region, the further it’s had to travel and the more likely it’s faced some sort of treatment to survive the journey.
You can seek out only in-season produce and even buy from stores that support local growers, but nothing quite compares to produce you can grow yourself.
