Quiz: Gardening Quiz
Gardening for health and for frugality
Having your own vegetable patch is a real privilege. If you don't have one, it's well worth considering whether you could make one, have an allotment or just do some 'window box' food growing. Of course, for a vegetarian, it's an extremely natural and pretty necessary activity.
You can select the foods you want to grow. You can treat them how you choose, as they grow (I recommend a fully organic and synthetic-chemical-free method).
The act of gardening is mentally, psychologically and spiritually beneficial. The exercise is a bonus. Working with the soil and getting your hands good'n dirty gives a wholly different perspective on life. Almost nothing compares with the taste and goodness of fresh food, straight from the garden. Then there's the warm glow of pride, as you harvest the colourful produce.
Take up your fork and trowel and join me in the vegetable garden! Earn squidpoints into the bargain!
N.B.: We live in the Temperate Northern Hemisphere - this quiz is based on experiences under those conditions.
On 12th April 2011, a quizzer notified me of a possible glitch on this quiz. The 'correct' answer was obviously wrong but it shows the correct answer on my screen when I open the quiz in 'edit' mode. Please let me know of any answers you may find that are anomalous.
Believe me it's healthy!
You benefit from working with nature
You benefit from the exercise
You benefit from FRESH food
You benefit from eating organic
It's a great hobby!
