What better way to have a backyard adventure than to grow a garden?
Here is my new “Grow Food NOT Grass” sign that I made using a wood burner, a nice piece of walnut and some scraps. This goes with the terraced garden that I built in the spring. Actually, this is the front lawn, so my sign also serves to inspire everyone that walks past to plant their own garden.
A garden not only saves money, it’s more healthy and better for the environment. Some interesting factoids:
- Over 90% of the vegetables in the grocery store come from a different state.
- Almost all grocery store vegetables, even organic, use pesticides and fertilizers.
- If everyone grew their own garden, we could save billions of dollars and billions of gallons of gas.
