I’ve been reading a lot lately on vegetables and how bad they are for me and my family and I’ve decided to start my own garden. I have my backyard and I can fit a small space to grow vegetables there. I tried buying vegetables from my local gardeners here in Indiana, but I’m still not sure what fertilizers they use to grow the vegetables.
I must admit, since I started documenting myself on the food industry I started to buy less and less vegetables. I’m trying to avoid the dirty dozen vegetables (apples, celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, sweet bell peppers, potatoes, lettuce, kale) and buy only the ones that have the lowest probability of being full of chemicals.
But spring is coming and my family loves the green veggies: the lettuce and spinach. We usually have salad besides every meal, so I started thinking about growing my own vegetables in the backyard. And honestly I think it will be more cheap to grow them than to buy them from the supermarket. Not to mention that I could grow more vegetables than just the lettuce and spinach that we love so much. I’m dying to taste again the tomatoes, the real ones not this plastic ones we have in the stores nowadays.
But I need your help, because I’ trying to figure out what kind of a garden to make. I’ve been reading a lot on traditional gardens and then I found out about the raised beds. I’m thinking of making a few, because the space is not very big and from what I’m reading it’s the best option when you don’t have a lot of space and it’s more practical than the traditional way of growing vegetables.
My friends are not that into the whole organic vegetables thing, so most of my research was done over the internet. Are there any other ways to make a small garden for a family of 4 ?
