Dinner is right outside your door. Grow your own nutrient-packed vegetables, fruits & herbs.
With a backyard garden, you know all kinds of things about the vegetables, fruits, and herbs you harvest to create meals for your family. To begin with, count on an intense flavor. Produce tastes best when it’s fresh – plucked from the vine and when it’s perfectly ripe and eaten soon after harvested. Homegrown tomatoes will always be much sweeter than those bought at your local supermarkets. Just picked lettuce will be bricklayer, more tender, and flavorful when harvested fresh for those sandwiches, salads, and other delicious entrees. Talk about a garden-side snack. These are top choices.
When the field-to-table distance is mere feet instead of hundreds of miles, putting together a spur-of-the-moment mean is as easy stepping out the door, harvesting what’s ripe, and combining the product with some kitchen staples for a delicious meal or healthy snack.
A mesclun salad topped with slivers of baby radishes and a handful of sweet peas is the perfect starter for a springtime supper. A backyard garden can infuse your breakfast, lunch, or supper with fresh flavor from mid-spring through the fall seasons. Another great idea is to can and freezes your produce, and you can quickly eat from your garden a year long.
