It couldn’t be easier to buy fruit and vegetables. There are stores and markets on every other street. Large retailers even sell pre-prepared, peeled and chopped fruit that you can eat straight out of the packet and veg that’s already been washed and chopped that you can throw straight into a stew. So, what’s the point in growing your own? Why would you put in the time, effort and hard work, as well as the initial expense that comes with getting everything set up when you can just walk into your local shop and buy everything that you want? Even more exotic fruit and veg are readily available, and now that so much food is imported, you don’t even have to worry about what is in season. However, growing your own food has many awesome benefits, here are some of them.
