Ask the Readers: Do You Grow Your Own Food?
Editor's Note: Congratulations to Alissa, Therese, and Mary for winning this week's contest!
Growing your own food can be a very rewarding activity in many ways, from watching the fruits of your labor grow day by day to enjoying the actual fruits (and vegetables!) harvested fresh from your garden. You'll trim your grocery expenses over time, and if you join a co-op or community garden, you'll even expand your social circle!
Of course, it may take some time, labor, and upfront costs to get a garden planted and flourishing. While it's useful to have your own food garden, it might not fit some people's lifestyle.
Do you grow your own food? Where do you grow them? Have some crops been more successful than others? What issues have you come across, and how did you solve them? If you don't grow your own food, would you like to? What would you grow?
Tell us whether you grow your own food and we'll enter you in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!
