How To Set Up An Easy Care Vegetable Garden Without Breaking Your Back Or The Bank
If you are wondering how to survive the economic downturn then growing a vegetable garden is a good way to start.
Before we never thought very much about food but now the situation is starting to change.
Every time we go to the supermarket it seems the price of something we like to eat is higher than last time.
Also now with the internet we are getting stories that say some of the chemicals found in the food we eat are causing our health to go downhill.
And another thing, the obesity situation is causing us to eat more because the food tastes so good laden with sugars and other additives that just happen to keep us fat.
So not only is food getting more expensive we are eating much too much of it.
Actually have you ever really thought much about food and where it comes from?
If you check the labels you will find that most food is imported. Even some of the vegetables come a long way before we eat them.
To keep them fresh they are loaded with chemicals to stop them ripening.
Also to grow these same vegetables they are covered with chemicals to keep the bugs off. Then to get them to grow, fertilizers are added to the soil.
But now the world is changing and with the price of oil over $100 a barrel everything is going to get more expensive.
Most chemicals and fertilizers come from oil or natural gas. And if you listen to the TV and read the newspapers you can get the impression that the world is running out of both oil and natural gas.
So anything made from oil or natural gas will go up in price. And that includes the vegetables you eat.
Already now with the bio-fuels craze that is sweeping the world, a lot of food is being turned into fuel for your car. So there is less food to eat.
Now when you bring in supply and demand what happens? Well the price of food keeps going up because food is going into your gas tank.
Another thing in the news these days is global warming.
If global warming gets any worse then there will be problems with food. Already good farmland is drying up and there are severe droughts in a number of food producing regions of the world.
So how do you survive the future with the price of food constantly increasing?
Well for a start you grow your own. If you live in suburbia in a house with a lawn, you can turn your lawn into a vegetable garden. And grow your own vegetables.
If your yard will grow grass and weeds then it will grow vegetables for you to eat.
Actually growing vegetables is not very difficult. Plants only need three things to grow Ė water, sunlight and warmth, and soil to grow in.

Also they say that nature will find a way
and that is so true. All you need to do is put the seed in the soil in
the springtime and water it and nature will do the rest.
