To avoid feeling sick to your stomach every time you hear about food being recalled, why not grow vegetables for your family right in your very own back yard? With all the food recalls and scares it is hard not to feel at times that there really isn’t any absolutely safe food available on the market for people to purchase and bring home to their families.
Growing vegetables in your own back yard is probably the best location for this type of project, especially when the majority of the farm land on sale is being purchased by developers. Even if it was not being sold to these businessmen, the price is too high for most people. Growing organic vegetables in the back yard is cheaper and really much more practical; this project does not require as much space as some may think.
With a little bit of out of the box thinking, you may be pleasantly surprised to see just what type of garden you can grow in your own personal space. An example of one of these ideas is to plant your vegetables in an object that is mobile such as an old wagon; this will make it easier for you to move your little garden into the shade or into the sun.
If the idea of digging around in the back yard is not appealing, then another option is to plant your garden in large sized steel buckets that are galvanized. For a more creative individual, the garden can be placed in pots throughout the yard which can be bought in different types of designs or you can even paint them on your own. The amount of space that you may have to work with should not discourage you from taking on this life changing project, no matter how small the space might be.
