My rhetorical answer would be “Why not grow your own vegetables?"
The fact that you have reached this page is reason enough! You are obviously interested, and maybe decided in your own mind. If it is just the actual act of doing something that is stopping you – for now - let’s see what we can do to move you forward!
Almost anyone can grow their own vegetables, for there are enough choices to make the ‘where’ part of the equation a non-starter. Vegetables can be grown in the garden; in a pot; in a greenhouse; indoors; on an allotment; or even in a dish on the kitchen windowsill!
One of the most compelling reasons for growing your own, must be that of the increased health benefits. Whilst the healthy aspects include the control of what chemicals actually go into your food, there are wider health implications brought about by simply ‘doing’ something away from the normal stresses and strains of life.
You could actually make additional friends – simply by having a ‘new’ hobby to talk about. And of course anything that moves you away from the TV or social networks can only be for your own good.
In short, you can more or less control how your food is grown, and where it is grown! There are many more reasons why you might to decide to grow your own vegetables. We are all different. We all have our own reasons for most things in life. Basically, if you feel it is a good idea - do it!
