Home gardening is used to make your home good but also important for your own well-being. Home gardening is taking on many forms, from a few plants in containers to large garden plots in the backyard. Far beyond the benefits of home-grown fresh vegetable and ornamental flowers gardening also have several health benefits. There is no comparison between the home-grown tomato and grocery store-bought one. Even though you don’t have a yard in your home still you can start this on a balcony, a window that receives a lot of sunlight, with indoor herb on your windowsill. You will be amazed to see how many tomatoes, pepper, lemon, herbs, and decorative plants can grow in a pot at home.
Improve your health
“We might think we are nurturing our
garden, But of course, it’s our garden
that is really nurturing us.”- Jenny Uglow
Consuming fresh fruits and vegetables is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. When you eat something from your home garden it is enriched with vitamin content. All that digging, planting, and weeding burn calories and strengthen your heart. Your input for the garden gives output that’s good for your cardiovascular health. When you spend 30 minutes in a home garden you are exposing yourself to the sun for vitamin D absorption which is vital to our health. Working with your hand increases your hand strength and your dexterity. Thus, it is a great way to keep your finger and hand strength for as long as possible. Furthermore, such physical activity is good for your bones, maintaining blood pressure, cholesterol level, and brain electrical activity.
One of the greatest advantages of growing your own vegetable at home is to reduce the monthly food budget. A pack of seeds is almost equal to the single vegetable or fruit that you’ve bought from a grocery store. In fact, your vehicle consumes fuel to reach a nearby grocery store daily. That’s why when taking food costs into consideration gardening is always the best appealing option.
Fresh is best
A home garden helps you to easily access fresh fruits and vegetables. Many farmers use chemicals to grow vegetables and fruits this is the reason we are facing a lot of health issues. Growing pure organic, nutritious fruits, and vegetables by skipping fertilizers and chemicals at home is the best option. The quality and flavor of freshly produced fruits and vegetables would be superior to store-bought organic products. For the best flavor and good texture, most vegetables are harvested just before full maturity.
Air pollution has become the biggest issue of Urban life. Our cities have very fewer trees. Your garden will give a positive impact on your environment as the quality of fresh air is deteriorating day by day. Thereby, rescue your environment with your little contribution to the home garden. It will not only improve the air quality of your surroundings rather it will also reduce the air pollution of your environment. Likewise, inhaling the fresh air from your garden will bring positive change to your health.
Growing a garden is like an art that follows the increase of your aesthetic value and self-esteem. Whenever you will look at your growing garden it will fill your mind with pride, satisfaction and contentment. Similarly, it will bring positive vibes to your family as well.
Home gardening is a best family hobby
For many homeowners, Gardening is a fun, family-friendly activity, that allows the children to make their hands dirty and open the way to learn where their food comes from. It is full of enjoyment and learning. Kids primarily experience the activity from bare ground to a beautiful plant and to making salads. Gardening is the best way to get your family off the couch and onto their feet.
Natural stress reliever
“Allow nature to flow into you
As sunshine flow into tress.”-John Muir
Gardening is the best anti-depression/stress therapy. That’s the reason, many hospitals are using colorful plants to recover the injuries, strokes, and surgeries of their patients. Sometimes you feel down and lack of motivation the fresh air and sunshine of your garden would always be there to boost your mood immediately. Working in between green plants will make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Hence, gardening fights better stress than any other hobby.
Consequently, we can say that home gardening has a number of benefits from covering our budget (health and grocery) to reducing environmental pollution. Now, what’s stopping you from starting your own home garden. Get the basic tools from a nearby store and start reaping the benefits that a garden can add to your life.
