No one disputes that buying a kilogram of vegetables or potatoes is much cheaper than growing these products yourself. Cheaper both in material terms and in terms of time spent. But still, growing your own products is much more useful than buying them on the market. And here's why:
Fresh fruits and vegetables are many times he althier than market-bought ones. Tomatoes and cucumbers after two or three days of storage lose up to 80-90% of those nutrients that our body needs. Vegetables from the garden usually go straight to the table.
The food you grow does not contain any harmful chemicals. You yourself know how you cultivated your garden.
Not only will your diet be much richer in fruits and vegetables, which is very he althy, but the whole process of growing them is additional physical exercise. 45 minutes in the garden burns as many calories as 30 minutes of aerobics.
Gardening and vegetable gardening are, according to many scientists, a great way to relieve stress.
You can teach your kids where food comes from. They will understand that potatoes or bread do not ripen on store shelves, and that we are all dependent on mother earth.
Growing something with your own hands, planting it in the ground, watching the first sprouts appear, caring for the fruits are all powerful sources of joy.
