We are often afraid. Afraid of starting something we can’t finish or something we are completely in the dark in, but looking back on those times that I was completely out of my comfort zone I can confidently say that I don’t regret it. However, those times when I chickened out I come back to in my memories and often wonder if it would impact me in anyway if I had just did what I wanted to do in the beginning. So if you’re between two minds I would strongly encourage you to start your garden in a small way.
Adopting a rabbit opened my eyes to the quality of life I was providing just by judging the food I was giving her, it made me do my own research on the supermarket produce and I would highly recommend that you do so too! I made the decision that what my family and I eat is important. But then I hit the roadblocks and it was so easy to quit, it’s hard for us humans to get out of the habit that we are so used to doing, I would be the first to admit this! I have a never ending string of commitments I didn’t follow through on but I’m breaking my mold publicly and would like to document my journey to growing food from home. This quote I believe sums this up perfectly.
I am often told, “it is cheaper to buy fruits and vegetables than to raise them.” I have nothing to say in reply. There are so many cheap things we can have. Experience had proved that one of the best things we can have is a garden, either to work in or to visit daily when the season permits. We have but one life to live here , and to get the cheapest things out of it is rather poor ambition.E.P Roe The Home Acre
