Working in your own garden can be a pleasant experience. It’s also healthy for you, because you can connect with nature.

Who doesn’t love a garden when it is full of trees and shrubs bearing juicy, sweet fruits?! Yes, I was blessed with a fruit garden at my parent’s house. I just loved the freshness there, the fragrance of those nutritious fruits and the color in the garden was outstanding. I loved eating fruits in spring and summer time when they were in season. I found so much pleasure in picking them fresh from the trees, waiting for them to ripen and choosing to pluck the best ones. Those were good days.
There are many good reasons to grow fruits by yourself. For starters, you don’t have to go to the market to buy them; you always have to pay more for the good ones. Stores make you look at the prettiest ones but you can never be sure if they will taste as good as they look.
So why not grow it yourself in your backyard or garden? Growing food at home can be an adventure for sure. Isn’t it worth the effort since it will benefit you for a long time?

I will also include an option, below, for packing it full of vegetable protein, for vegetarians, others who take part in Meatless Monday or those of us who like to mix in a few meatless dishes per week.
