I grew up in a city apartment so it is a given that I don't know anything about gardening. But I married a backyard farmer who is fond of planting vegetables and other edibles like small fruit trees. Even if our property is not that big, we have several fruit trees and lots of vegetables including pepper, lemon and strawberry. The harvest is not much because those plants are only for home consumption. But the most benefit that I get from our garden is the relaxation and joy of picking the fruits and harvesting the vegetables. I didn't know that gardening is much fun although I know that it is also hard work.
