My little urban patch: week 4
Growing your own vegetables in an edible garden can certainly contribute to lowering your environmental footprint. More importantly, gardening can also help to improve your physical and mental health – something we could all use right now in these COVID-19 times.
I’ve already gained a great deal of pleasure from my little urban patch. Along with the enjoyment of watching the progress of the seedlings I planted, I also know that I’m growing nutrient-dense food for my family that offers a whole range of health benefits.
In this week’s video, I check in on the winter vegie crops I planted four weeks ago to see how they’re coming along. While the caterpillars that were munching on my artichokes have thankfully moved on, I find another unwelcome guest that needs to be taken care of.
