I’ve been doing basic gardening for about 3 years now. Learned a lot already. Don’t grow much to make a difference but at least supplemental stuff that I don’t have to buy. Mostly peppers and tomatoes. Now I pick my plants and seeds a bit better after experimenting.
In a remote area like I live in, everybody grows a lot of their own veggies, since the nearest store with a good selection of produce is 18 miles away-and we all barter with each other anyway. Winter is the only time people are not growing gardens here and have to go buy produce. Store bought tomatoes and serrano peppers have no taste at all compared to home grown.
