The Family Vegetable Garden

October 21st, 2021 by admin Leave a reply »

Gardening is great exercise. It gets you out into the fresh air. If you chose to grow herbs or vegetables, you can eat your own produce, fresh from the garden. The taste is amazing, far superior to shop bought food.

If you have children who don’t like vegetables, you should try to get them to grow their own. At first, let them choose what they would like to grow. Try to suggest something easy, to avoid the disappointment of a failed crop. When the plants are growing, encourage them to pick the vegetables and taste them straight from the plant, while they are weeding or watering. The taste is incomparable and it won’t be long before you have a family of vegetable lovers.

The exercise they get from being outside in the fresh air, digging and weeding is better than the lack of exercise they get from sitting in front of the computer, TV, or Xbox.

The feeling of delight as they watch their seedlings grow, flower and produce vegetables is life changing. The satisfaction of tasting the first of their crop and the achievement of providing food for the family, are feelings that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Growing food for the family is a tradition that has gone back in my family for many generations. It will continue to go on because my children have had the satisfaction of growing their favourite vegetables in their garden. They will probably not decide to provide all their family’s needs but they will always have a few fresh herbs and the traditional homegrown tomatoes in their gardens when they get their own homes.

Gardening can be a great bonding exercise for the family. Deciding which vegetables to grow and who is to be responsible for each garden bed is a family decision that can help make every family member feel important. Even very young children are capable of managing simple responsibilities.

When the vegetables are harvested and the family shares their meal, they can all feel they have contributed. It’s amazing how something so simple can unite a family.
