    I would much rather grow my own veggies than by them, but I unfortunately don't have the time or space for a garden right now. Hopefully I will be able to have one someday though!

    I would rather grow them for a number of reasons, organic, self-sustainable, tasty, cheap...  But of course, it's hard to do.

    I absolutely LOVE home grown veggies.  I get spoiled all summer long with fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans and much more.

    Then when the dreaded winter sets in, I am forced to buy them at the supermarket.

    Growing vewgetables is very rewarding and provides a sense of achievement. I find homegorwn always tastes better too. In addition, you know exactly what has, and hasn't been sprayed on them which is always a bonus.

    All things considered growing your own is more expensive, more time consuming and a lot of hardwork, but there's no doubt that it's great to get out and get your fingers green in the garden!

    I would love to grow my own veggies.  you do not know what is one them, it is relaxing, and you can get what you want in a garden.   unfortunately, I cannot, because I live in a condo.   tried container gardening once, and was not successful, but I will try again next year.

    the taste of home grown veg is amazing once you have tried it you won`t want to buy veg again, if you don`t have much room try square foot gardening, the principal is that you plant your veg within 1 foot by 1foot areas either google it or buy book square foot gardening Mel Bartholomew i got mine from Amazon
