Our house has had a vegetable garden for as long as I can remember. My grandparents owned this property before us and my grandfather was an avid vegetable gardener. After my husband and I took over the property, we continued to keep up the garden. Over time, the yard has changed significantly and we have moved the vegetable garden, but we have not yet missed a year.

Vegetable gardening is so very beneficial for everyone. It’s very therapeutic to garden and can create a wonderful sense of catharsis.
This wonderful article outlines the benefits of therapeutic gardening for the elderly, but I think that this article should be for everyone, not just the elderly.
