If you love to eat all types of vegetables and have the yard space available to you, then why do you not grow your own nutritious plants? It can be a very rewarding process that is fun and beneficial. There is nothing like placing a bowl of fresh veggies of any kind on your table knowing that you grew them yourself. They will taste fresher and better than any you can buy in the store just because you grew them! With all of the doubts we face about how produce is grown these days, it is also a relief to know exactly what went into the growing of the vegetables you intend to eat.
The great thing about growing your own garden at home is that you only have to grow the things you like to eat. If you hate tomatoes, then do not grow them. If you love cabbage, then grow a lot of it. Most vegetables can be preserved in some way to be eaten later in the winter. This is great because you know how the cost of some vegetables can soar during the winter months because they are out of season. You can dry some vegetables from your garden like peppers and use those that way in cooking. Others can be canned or frozen and used that way.
Even though growing a garden outdoors in your yard is the best way to grow a lot of vegetables at once, those who live in apartments or townhouses might not have that option. This does not mean that you can not grow anything at all. If you have access to the roof top where you live, you can use large containers to grow some plants that produce a lot like tomatoes or even beans that will climb up a stick. Growing fresh herbs is a favorite hobby for some city bound people because with the proper grow lights they can be grown indoors in small containers even without much direct sunlight.
It is not necessary to be able to grow all of the vegetables you eat, but if you want a fun hobby that also gives you food, then growing vegetables might be right for you. If you are able to grow an entire garden with a variety of plants, then do so. If limited space only allows you to grow herbs, then do that. Either way gardening on any scale is good for the soul and the body.
