When times are hard people try to make the best of what they have got and your garden is one area which can be utilised to save some money. None only can you save money but use of the garden to grow fruit and vegetables will make you healthier as well as your home garden produce being good for you. Even people who don't consider themselves gardeners can grow something quite easily. Take a look in your garden shed and you are likely to find some suitable garden tools to help you achieve some fresh produce - not quite the Good Life - but a contribution.
If you clear a little space in your shed under the window or if you lucky enough to have a solar potting garden shed then so much the better. Inside the shed under the shed windows you can bring on seedlings in pots whether they are tomatoes, lettuces or peas, literally most vegetables will benefit from an early start. Again the garden shed can help with potatoes which need the light for them to start shooting. When they have shoots you can then plant them in the garden of you can even buy potatoes bags for them to grow in. What you do is to put one potato in the bag and surround it with compost. You then need to water it and you will find before long a small crop of potatoes - about a kilo which is pretty good for one potato.
Tomato plants are also easy to grow and can also be grown in pots or compost bags so, even if you have not got a garden then you can still grow some things. By utilising your garden shed for vegetables and fruit you can feel good with yourself knowing that you are using your assets to help through this difficult time. It's also good to know that the shed can be more that just a storage building and can be multi talented.
Residents down in Somerset have taken this advice on board and have the belief that the growing of home grown fruit and vegetables is one of the secrets for long life. Montacute, in Somerset where the cider apples grow, was found to have the highest life expectancy in Britain after a study or millions of pensions records, with their residents living to an amazing 90 years old on average. Nearly all the village's 680 population are active in growing fruit and vegetable in their gardens which seems to be helping to keep them fit and healthy. There's no record of the number of garden sheds owned by the villagers but I would assume that most would have a small shed of some sort for storing their garden tools and for storing their excess produce.
Nordic Timber and Wooden Log Cabins Shirley Hann, life long resident and grandmother, said that it seems that the growing of fruit and vegetable does have a bearing on their health and long life. The residents in the village all have their own vegetable patch in their garden or a small allotment for producing these crops. Charlie Northern, another resident of the village, has been growing vegetable for over 40 years for himself and his wife and this has helped them to live a long and healthy life thanks to their garden .
It was only recently that the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) was offering tips and advice on how to use your garden and to benefit from your garden shed. The RHS have been offering garden advice for over 200 years to gardeners for people who want to use the garden to grow food outside.
