Food definitely tastes better when it’s made with fresh ingredients, and if you don’t have a farmers market nearby (or even if you do!), why not try growing your own produce this year? A lot of people are intimidated by the idea of cultivating a vegetable garden—I know I was!—but with the right tools and intel, it’s easier than you might think.
Where there’s a will to grow a vegetable garden, there’s definitely a way, no matter how much space or experience you have. Sure, gardening often takes some trial and error, but the worst thing that can happen is your plants don’t make it, in which case you can simply try again next year! (I know, I know. It feels bad when plants die, but part of gardening is learning not to take it so personally.)
