When I grew up on vegetables grown in our own garden. Spent almost all of my adult life in apartments with little or no opportunity to do any gardening.
We moved into a house three years ago and slowly converting lawn space into vegetable gardens.
To me I gain a great amount of pleasure in preparing the soil, seeding plants and enjoying the fruit of my "labor". Nothing beats seeing how the soil improves year after year, how year after year life returns to a formerly suburban lawn.
Best of all, I know the history of the food I eat, I am able to choose if and how much fertilizer and/or herbicide/pesticide I use and the food simply appears to taste better than store bought food.
