Why grow food?

Today a student asked why would we grow food when we can just buy it at the store? There are many reasons! Freshness, quality, variety, community, and money saving are just a few. Here is a salad mix that we ate today. Several of these leaves, including the purple mustard, are not available in stores. It is lots of fun to eat fresh food grown here in our own garden.


Kohlrabi is another fun plant to grow. Also, the leaves are edible but not sold in stores!

I love gardening because I love good food and being outside.  The most delicous food is the food you grow yourself, and the best times in life are spent in nature.
