Go, Glow and Grow... your own garden at home! Aside from adding appeal to your yard, gardening significantly strengthens your mental health! Getting your hands dirty can increase serotonin levels as contact with a specific soil bacteria (Mycobacterium vaccae) triggers the release of serotonin- the happy chemical in our brain! Plus, Interacting with nature has been proven to boost mood, reduce anger, and improve general psychological well-being. What's not to love about that? Starting a garden for the first time or venturing the route to food independence for even an experienced gardener can be a steep, windy road- to a point where people stop and take a U-Turn! However, Homesweet Homegrown Author Robyn Jasko and Illustrator Jennifer Biggs shed light on the garden path! The book covers comprehensive details such as choosing and starting seeds, to preserving the harvest, pickling, canning, fermenting and freezing your garden-fresh veggies to have access to organic, homegrown food all year long! It also features projects for seed starting, grow kit light setups, easy irrigation systems, designs for upcycling old furniture into gardening stations, recipes for homemade organic plant sprays, charts listing dollars-and-cents breakdowns of homegrown versus store-bought produce, and growing guides for fruits or vegetables. Basically, it's the ultimate guide on growing, making, and storing your own food. Whether you want to take advantage and going full-on food independent or just want to garden as a form of self-care and relaxation
-- this book has you covered! Go on and, get glowing & growing!
