There are so many wonderful reasons for planting and tending your own vegetable garden and now is the perfect time to make your plans while we wait for the warmth of spring to return. Become part of the popular homegrown food movement with a garden perfectly designed for your property and filled with your family’s favorites.
Studies have shown that children are more willing to try vegetables that they have grown themselves and gain a knowledge of where fresh food comes from. The experts at Gerbert & Sons will help determine the optimum location for planting and determine if creating raised planting beds might be your best option, supplemented with their organic fertilizers and pest control options. Home gardens improve health as freshly picked vegetables are higher in nutrients, and tending to your plants provides outdoor exercise and increases your exposure to natural Vitamin D. Vegetable gardening is known to reduce stress and improve mood by taking you away from electronic screens and into the serenity of nature, and can be enjoyed as a private experience or as a project shared with the entire family. Start small with a few familiar vegetables and expand as you gain experience, introducing new varieties including heirloom options, which pack more flavor and nutritional value than hybrids.
