Garden-fresh foods are both fun and rewarding. Whether you’re looking to create a square-foot garden for vegetables, a fanciful fruit bed, or a window display with herbs, there are many benefits to growing your own food.
Weaver Gardens only offers USDA Organic options because they have a higher nutritional value than conventional food. From many types of lettuce and tomatoes to broccoli and beats, you will be amazed by their sweet, juicy flavors.
Secondly, there are some species of plants that actively repel animals like rabbits, squirrels and deer. The herbs, rosemary, rue, sage, and thyme are all effective repellents and can be interplanted with crops like carrots and peas to further protect them from critters. Another great thing about planting these natural deterrents is that they look attractive and can be enjoyed later at the dinner table.
Did you know that a lot of these garden-fresh plants are also perennials? That means you can enjoy home-grown food year after year without having to start your garden over from scratch each Spring. Just plant your garden or orchard once, and your plantings should last for several years, maybe even several decades depending on the local climate. This includes, basil, kale, chives, rosemary, cilantro, lavender, oregano, parsley, sage, thyme, broccoli, spinach, radicchio, lemons, limes, strawberries and more.
Best of all, gardening is a fun, family-friendly activity that allows kids to get their hands dirty and learn where their food comes from. From planting crops to making a salad together, starting a vegetable, fruit and/or herb garden is a great way to get the family outside.
