Why do you grow tomatoes and vegetables?
I grow vegetables because I like to know where my food comes from, prefer organic produce and I like to garden. It is a miracle to complete the life cycle from seed to sun-ripened produce to seed again. Plus you get tomatoes.
1. Knowing the source of the food.
2. Enjoying the fresh benefits for health and taste.
3. Taking advantage of the health benefits of gardening activities.
4. The pleasure of sharing extras with neighbors and friends.
5. Gardening is wonderful time to think about the marvels of creation and ponder Bible passages related to it.
I used to grow them because it gave me pleasure and satisfaction. I can grow healthy vegetables with a little much of effort and patience. I loved the natural scenery created with my own work. I could share the joy of gardening with my own family members and other neighbours.
I grow veggies because it makes me happy. I like digging in the dirt, and watching something grow from a tiny seed to something I can eat. There's something very calming about working in the garden. I also like knowing that the food I grow is free from pesticides.
Honestly, I've stopped buying tomatoes. Nothing tastes as good as a tomato fresh from the garden, still warm from the sun. I'd rather go without in cold months than eat the pale imitations of tomatoes available at the grocery store.
I agree there is nothing like fresh tomatoes you grow yourself and it always makes me think back to my childhood when I would take a salt shaker out to the garden and eat my fill and I recall doing that even in high school!
I just bring them on in the house now but there was something special about carrying out that shaker to chow down!
