Why start a garden?
Gardening isn’t just for grandmas. You can grow a garden on your balcony, in the backyard, or on a rooftop.
What do you want to grow?
When I was younger my mom kept a small garden behind our house where she grew different vegetables and herbs. Even though back then I didn’t give it much thought, it’s clear that gardening is an easy way to save money and get exercise while enjoying the outdoors.
Why start a garden?
Gardening is one of the best ways to reconnect with nature (unless you’re already outside). Besides eating healthy, fresh food, growing your own plants can calm anxiety and help make stress more manageable in your busy schedule—and the physical activity involved in gardening is also good for you! It’s beneficial to have something to work towards as well. It gives your days structure and makes everything feel more tangible when you go from seeds to sprouts to finally eating your favorite plant-based dish! Gardening can also be a communal thing: you can have friends or family over for dinner or host barbecues during harvest season. Not only will you bond with them but your home will smell amazing from all the fresh herbs and delicious homegrown produce! How does that sound?
What kind of soil do I need? How often should I water it? What if there are pests? Is there anything else I should know before starting my first garden? These are all important questions that every gardener should ask themselves before they begin their first project; fortunately we’ve got some answers so you don’t have to go through all of this effort alone. The best thing about learning how to garden is that anyone can do it! What matters most is having passion so that you’ll want to keep going even when things seem rough. Start now so we can spend some time together outside watching our plants grow!
The joy of growing your own food.
Consider this: the taste of home-grown food is superior to store-bought. Your own garden will provide you with food that is more flavorful. You know how some store-bought fruits and vegetables look perfect, but don’t taste as good? In a lot of cases, they’re picked before they’re ripe, so they’ll survive the trip from the grocery store to your kitchen counter. That’s not a problem in your own garden! Choose what you want to harvest when it’s ready to eat, and enjoy the juicy flavor as well as knowing that you’re getting more nutrients than if you were buying it at the grocery store.
How healthy can homegrown produce be? Store-bought produce often has pesticides on them which have been linked to cancer; homemade garden veggies are pesticide free! Also, many veggies are cheaper—even organic—if you grow them in your own backyard. Even growing just a few herbs or tomatoes can save you money over time if you stop buying fresh basil at the grocery store every week. Not only will homegrown produce save money but it will also reduce waste because once its all gone, that’s it —no more trips to buy new stuff for dinner! Plus if you have animals like chickens or ducks, then homegrown fruits and veggies are great for them too!
How to save money with a garden
The average American household spends around $9,000 a year on groceries. If you’re lucky enough to have a backyard, though, you can grow your own vegetables and other foods for much less than that. By starting your own garden, you can significantly cut down on the cost of your food bill with just a little bit of work!
As anyone who’s ever attempted to grow anything knows, though, gardening is not always easy. The insects alone could drive you crazy—and if you live in an area where the weather isn’t too stable, it’s even more difficult to keep things in check. All the work that goes into getting a garden to flourish may seem like it would be better spent on some tropical vacation instead—but there are ways to save money while growing your own produce at home.

Choosing plants for your garden
Are you a big fan of plants but too busy or high-maintenance to keep one alive? (Or maybe your living situation doesn’t allow for pets?) No worries, there are still plenty of ways you can get gardening! Though not exactly the same as owning a plant, growing your own produce is nonetheless very rewarding. And if you don’t live in an area with a huge food selection, growing your own food will also give you more variety and potential health benefits.
There are several factors that go into deciding on what fruit and vegetables to grow: how much space do you have? How much time do you want to spend on your garden? What kind of climate do you live in? What kinds of fruits and veggies do you like to eat? The answers to these questions will guide the types of plants and crops that would thrive best in your garden.
If possible, choose a plot that’s separate from other plants—it’ll be easier to harvest and care for the plants separately. Another advantage is that if one plant gets diseased or attacked by bugs, it won’t spread easily across the rest of the garden. If this isn’t possible, be sure each crop requires different amounts of water so their soil can dry out between watering sessions.
Use companion planting for greater success! This means placing certain types of plants near others so they have each other’s strengths: some plants attract insects away from other plants while others repel them, some can provide natural cover against animals who might eat young seedlings while others may provide ground cover or shade against harsh sunlight. The possibilities are endless!
Gardening tips for beginners.
Starting a garden can seem daunting at first, but once you’ve done it, you’ll realize how simple it is. You’re taking care of something that will benefit both yourself and the world around you by providing you with food. Even if your plants wither away, the experience of growing them will probably be enough to keep you hooked on the hobby.
What’s important is to start small and work your way up. If this is your first time growing plants, choose ones that are easy to maintain and require little extra equipment—tomatoes are a good example, as they need very little in terms of nutrients or preparation. Get your soil prepared for planting (if necessary) and give plenty of water to get things going initially; use mulch to keep plant beds moist throughout the season. Once you see some green shoots emerging from the ground around your seedlings (which should happen within a few days), fertilize them once every month or two with an all-natural fertilizer like MiracleGro or fish emulsion (which can be found at most pet stores). Make sure not to overdo it, though—overfeeding can cause problems for your plants later on in life. Learn which plants need more sunlight than others so that they don’t grow too quickly in their location, as this can make them weaker or even kill them entirely during a cold winter. If possible, ask other gardeners for help—maintaining a vegetable garden especially requires guidance from someone who’s successfully completed the same process before!
How to grow a tomato plant
a. I really like the idea of using an existing structure, like a house or a yurt, to grow food. It seems so much easier than having to build your own garden and getting water for your plants.
b. Composting is awesome! There are so many ways that you can compost different types of waste. My favorite composting method is called The Worm Bin . When I don’t want to do as much handling with compost, I use my worm bin in my basement!
c. This might sound odd, but if you have any questions while you’re doing your research on gardening and then follow up with the right people, it can help you understand how everything works together and make things easier for you. For example , when we were starting our garden at our house we visited a local farmer’s market and spoke with them about keeping our plants alive in the winter when we were away from home for long periods of time . They gave us incredible advice that would have saved me a lot of stress if I hadn’t stopped by those first few days we set up our new garden!!
It’s really easy to start your own garden, and it is so worth it.
Gardening isn’t hard, and it’s a ton of fun. You can grow vegetables, fruit, and even herbs in your own garden. By growing things yourself you’ll save money in the long run because you won’t have to buy them from the store. It is also great for your health to eat fresh fruits and vegetables that you grew yourself because they will be healthier than store bought food.
In order to get started with gardening you need some basic supplies:
- a good spade or shovel (one that has a metal blade for durability)
- a hoe (you can use this to break apart the soil before planting)
- a rake
- sunscreen (protecting your skin is important when working outside)

Hello, and welcome to Grow Your Garden!
Gardening is something I’ve been passionate about for a long time. I like to grow things, and I especially like to eat the things I grow. But up until a few years ago, I was focused on being a good gardener—I wanted to grow as much as possible, and whenever something went wrong, I’d blame myself for not being good enough at gardening.
It took me a while to figure out that the most important thing about growing plants isn’t how much you get out of it—it’s how much you enjoy the process of growing them. And once I learned that lesson, my garden became an entirely different place. Instead of looking at it as a way to get food (which is definitely still awesome), my garden became a place to relax and unwind with nature.
