When you grow a garden, you no longer need to count on the supermarket produce section. Or in my case, the delivery barge. Taking control of where your food comes from can start right in your own backyard. Or even on a sunny windowsill.

From growing vegetables and fruits to natural pest control and soil improvement, there’s plenty of inspiration for new gardeners here. Start small or start big; just get started!
