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. 

Taste

They say that everything tastes better when you’ve made it yourself, and in this case, it’s true. Veggies and fruit that’s grown in your garden can taste vastly different, and better, than mass-produced options from big shops. 

It’s Easy

Growing things for yourself doesn’t need to be difficult. Now that geodesic dome kits for sale are ready to help you get set up. You can get going with the minimum of supplies and effort. Even if you are short on space, you can grow things like cherry tomatoes, strawberries, and herbs in window boxes and hanging baskets. 

Nutrition

When you buy mass-produced goods, they are just that. They are grown for their yield, with the aim to make as much money from as many products as possible. They aren’t grown to taste good and to be filled with nutrients. Things that you grow yourself are pure. They are packed with goodness and exceptionally good for you. 

You Know What You Are Getting

If you buy a packaged product, you can never completely know what chemicals and toxins it’s been exposed to during growing, picking, transit, packaging, and storage. It’s been passed from person to person and place to place. It’s been through many different processes, and you can’t even know 100% what has happened to it. When you grow something at home for yourself, you know exactly what you are getting, and what you are putting into your body. 

It’ll Improve Your Diet

Many of us are guilty of buying things like fruit, veg, and salad in big bags because they are cheaper. They get left in our fridge, they go soft and moldy, and they get wasted. We buy the same things every week, and we rarely eat all of them. 

When you grow things yourself, you’ll try new things, enjoying the experience. You’ll only pick what you need. You’ll add more veg to your meals as you’ll be keen to save money and your diet will improve. You’ll also waste less, and buy less packaging. 

The Kids Will Love It

If you’ve got kids or relatives with kids, they’ll love helping you to grow things. They’ll be keen to try new flavors and get stuck in.
