The French call it a jarding potager. The Scottish call it a kaiylard. It is the perfect concoction of goodness and taste – our very own Kitchen Garden.
A kitchen garden is our best friend when we decide to go on a diet. It is rich in phytochemicals, anti-oxidants, vitamin C, vitamin A and folate. The roughage, in addition, acts as a great cleansing agent and gets rid of all the unwanted fat in our intestine.
On an average, groceries obtained from supermarkets travel around 20 to 30 kms to reach us. By the time it gets to our houses, the veggies would already have lost their freshness and a good deal of their nutritional value. A kitchen garden gives us the benefit of obtaining fresh, organic, pesticide-free vegetables sans the drive to the supermarket!
Maintaining a kitchen garden can be a fun family activity. It also adds to our daily workout routine. In one way, we will be trading in our excess calories for tasty garden fresh produce. Isn’t that wonderful?
A kitchen garden also adds to family savings. Purchasing a barbeque kit for outdoor dinner time or booking a family outing can come right out those savings! And the best part is that every member of the family would have earned it.
The sweet and precious joy of watching our kitchen garden growing and blossoming under our tender care is unbeatable. Plus it keeps the weeds off our yard!
