Why Growing Your Own is good for you. It might look as if I am about to launch into a page on the benefits of growing your own fruit and vegetables, but I am not. All I want to say is - it is good for you because it can make you happy. I really do feel more optimistic when I walk down the path that divides the fruit bushes from the growing vegetables and start to notice the tiny fruits forming on the blackcurrant and red currant bushes. Then I look and notice that while I have been away the flowering strawberries have started to produce miniature fruits. The tayberry looks like we will get a crop this year and not just a taster of three fruits as it did in its first year. Plus I am oh so popular at the moment with those I know that love the rhubarb I am growing.
Even the gooseberries are starting to develop. I will try to get new photos of the fruit and veg. on here soon.
I do not put ads on my blog but do have a counter that shows me how many visits the pages get. (The stats. count is just there so I can see if I am 'talking' to myself, luckily so far this has not happened.) By continuing your visit here you are consenting to the stats. counter tracking cookies. Cookies, that sounds like something nice to eat but not that exciting.
Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
