EVP MAN;876669]Kind of makes me sad to think that the recession is the
cause for so
many people to get involved in home gardening these days :( But on the
bright note, it's a great thing to involve ones self in. Not only
it help put food on the table but it's also providing many other
benefits such as: much better and fresher produce than one can buy at
any grocery chain, a great feeling of pride and self sufficiency that
has been lost in better economic times, and most of all the pure joy
and relaxation than can be had puttering around in your own garden. I
just finished reading an article on the net that said a backyard garden
is considered a home improvement these days and I personally couldn't
agree more! In my area we have a lot of Amish folks and they are very
good neighbors whom I have a lot of respect for. They knew the value
self sufficer long before the economy went down the drain. They surely
set a great example for all of us to follow indeed. Trust in God and
make the best use of what God has provided us! Hope to see many more
folks get involved in home gardening. As for myself, I been out of
work for over two years now and may dig up my whole back yard if I have
to. But then again, what good is a back yard if it doesn't give you
back something in return :) Lot less grass to mow also........LOL
we have a lot of amish and mennonite around our area here and they
are really good hard working ppl:).
u are so right on the gardening end of things rich. i know a
good number of ppl living in the city that have started gardening
and some apt buildings now have community gardens for the ppl to use.
nothing like being able to go out and pick a nice juicy tomato
and have a great munch;).
mmmmmmm got to love those fresh garden veggies:).
