Gardening provides a great way to put fresh produce on your table. Benefits include economy, flavor and satisfaction of growing your own. If you don’t have time for seeds, look in your local garden supply shop for plants that are already started. Here are a few favorites that anyone can grow, even in containers:
- Lettuce - makes delicious salad
- Herbs - these can save money
- Tomatoes - unbelievable flavor and the most popular garden veggie
- Squash - easy to grow
- Strawberries - wonderful to eat
