The iconic image of a gardener plucking produce from the earth and placing it in a big bushel basket has become a thing of the past for many Americans. However, with the rise of agri-business and the many chemicals that are used to grow more vegetables faster, many people have grown distrustful of the produce they find at their local grocery stores. Questions of where something came from and what went into its production have become increasingly difficult to answer with things being flown in from all over the country and even the world.
Home Grown Goodness
For many, the response to this problem has been to take a larger personal role in producing their food. Many people have addressed this issue by placing gardens in their backyards and growing produce themselves. Personal contact with their vegetables gives them the ability to know what went into their production. For some, the task of putting a garden in their backyard was easy. They had the space and just plotted out a spot for their garden.
For others, though, a garden may be remain a dream because they struggle with the question of where to put it. In many cases, a small yard may make it hard to have a substantial garden or any garden at all. When yard space is at a premium, it becomes difficult to have a garden without sacrificing the entire yard.
