We all have sense enough not to expect the impossible, but we have the right to expect the magic when it comes to our gardens. Especially when it comes to growing your fresh garden vegetables, ferns, and fruit, and it doesn’t matter if you only have a few square feet on a sunny New York City fire escape or if you’ve got hundreds of thousands of sprawling square feet in the rural countryside.
We want to inspire you to get to digging! But a word of warning: Growing your vegetables is not only seriously addictive, but it will also completely change your attitude toward what you eat. Once you’ve tried freshly dug new potatoes or tomatoes picked straight from the vine or bitten into a ripe cob of sweet corn still warm from the sun, nothing will ever quite taste the same again.
What’s more, nothing will match the simple satisfaction of eating food you’ve raised from seed, transplanted, watered, fed, and tended to until it’s reached that perfect moment when it’s ready for harvest time. There’s no looking back. You’ll be hooked on fresh garden veggies. How can anything be fresher, more seasonal, or more local than something fresh picked yourself?
