In the midst of the pandemic, many people were reverting back to their old roots, like in times of the world war by growing their own food. During the pandemic, many stores started to run out of seeds that people were using to grow their own gardens. these are starting to be known as victory gardens. If you want to start your own, be sure to nurture the soil that you are using as well as using compost to help yourself out.
- Raising a garden of your own will help decrease grocery bills, and provides your family with a steady supply of in-season vegetables.
- One way to enjoy a variety of fresh fruits and veggies without having to grow them all yourself is to gather a group of friends and neighbors who are also interested in gardening.
- Covering the soil with mulch or cover crops doesn’t just retain moisture and, by extension, conserve water.
