When we think of farming, we picture a huge business. We imagine miles of land, stretching across a sunny landscape. Cattle, tractors, and a seemingly endless harvest season.
But here is a little secret. You don’t need acres of land or even a backyard to have a garden. Some of the easiest plants to grow, can be alive and well in a sunny spot in your kitchen or on the front stoop.
There is such a personal satisfaction in growing your own food. Even if it is just the herbs you are garnishing a meal with, you know exactly how much hard work and love went into growing that plant. You provided the sun, the water, and the soil to make this plant flourish. You know the plants’ history, where it came from and every element it has come in contact with. Talk about being up close and personal with your food!
