Is gardening any good for you ?

This is a general question people ask. Gardening is something you can do to have some time to yourself and it also helps you connect with your neighbours. You can meet people in your area who share their common interest and they can be a source of help when you need advice.

Gardening vegetables or fruit is not only nutritious but a way to save on your monthly bills. On the other hand, you must have tasted the difference between vegetables & fruit from your garden compared to a supermarket. You don’t have to worry about health when you use your own produce. Personally, I like the taste of my own produce and I enjoy being self-sufficient, I like the feeling that you can pick and cook when you want ! Don’t you ? The size of your garden could lead to fewer plants but you can still grow variety. Being outdoors in a garden even for short time looking at the flowers and plants has a beneficial effect on your health and state of mind. You will have space to think !
