I found this cool graphic showing how “growing your own” is trending. Most older people can remember working in a garden as a child, or at least a grandparent having a garden. When I was 12 years old my parents bought six acres and moved our family out to “the country”. We had a barn, all sorts of animals, and of course… a garden. We hated weeding and all the work that went along with gardening, but the memories! I still remember all the potatoes! We put potatoes on newspaper and placed them under our beds for months. The “average” gardener in this graphic is ME! I’m over 45, female, and I graduate from college this spring. The savings are cool to read about and it doesn’t take tons of time. The stats say just about 5 hours a week. It just takes love, sunshine and water… that’s it. Enjoy the stats and hopefully this will motivate you to start a garden and grow your own.
