Most of us will agree that growing our own food not only produces better tasting produce, but also allows us to control the chemicals that come into contact with our food.
Try companion planting this spring.
For example, try planting tomatoes, geraniums and basil together.
While many of us grow a vegetable garden, what about trying your hand at growing fruit?
Choosing dwarf fruit trees is also a good idea because they usually produce faster and are easier to harvest fruit from.
There are many other benefits to growing and using fresh produce from your garden.
Even if you can only grow a container garden on your balcony, you will find that it will be well worth the effort, not to mention many garden plants can be over-wintered indoors with proper lighting.
