With the state of the current economy -- you would be surprised how much money a personal garden can save your family. Tending to a garden teaches the whole family to appreciate and connect with their food on a regular basis, as well as creating a well-balanced diet.
"We want to use it as a point of education, to talk about health and how delicious it is to eat fresh food, and how you can take that food and make it part of a healthy diet," she told Oprah Winfrey in the April issue of O magazine, first reported by food writer Eddie Gehman Kohan.
"You know, the tomato that's from your garden tastes very different from one that isn't. And peas -- what is it like to eat peas in season?

Spring is here and it's the perfect time for your family to research and plan your very own garden -- by summer time you will have fresh, healthy and in season vegetables that will nourish your family in every way!
