Put off by the thought of all the work a good garden entails?
It's a lot of work, but I keep the benefits in mind: lots of healthy, pesticide free vegetables (my garden is organic, which probably makes it even more work), new varieties of produce to experiment with in the kitchen, the fitness benefits of working in the gardening (it counts as exercise!), and saving money at the grocery store.
it can get frustrating to start one but maintaining one can be very relaxing, the physical and mental benefits are great! They say gardening is one of the best things you can do next to walking, add in all the other benefits of growing your own food and stuff like that.
I agree and don't for get their no need to go to the gym if more people did gardening they keep there weight down and have no health problems.
I like container gardening. It seems to be less work, and I can keep the pests away easier, which means I actually get to keep my veggies.
I started a container garden 2 years ago and was surprised by how easy it is to maintain. I only grow fruit and vegetables because I started the garden to reduce my food shopping bills.
I don't know if I have a good garden, but I am am happy with it. I am so happy with it I actually wrote a Hub on how to start your own container garden.
