Welcome to VeggieSpa.com, a family-run and family-focused resource for all of your gardening and greenhouse needs. Here at VeggieSpa, we know just how difficult it can be to find the balance between fostering fun family activities and finding cost-effective ways to provide for your family's needs. We believe that the key to finding this balance lies in the act of simplifying our lives. However, with four kids of our own, we know that simplicity can be hard to achieve. When our family first began to grow, food costs and safety quickly became our top concerns. Eventually, we realized that a backyard greenhouse was the solution. In the words of ecologist Howard T. Odum, "Nature has all the answers." This is our belief, and the premise on which VeggieSpa was founded over a year ago.
Our experience with natural, home-grown produce has made us eager to help others get the information, accessories, and ideas needed to turn a backyard greenhouse or garden into a profitable alternative to commercially grown food, as well as a source of wholesome family enjoyment. Anything you need to bring your backyard to life will be featured on our product pages and blog. Use our resources to turn your backyard into your own produce section! If you are interested in simplifying your life with the addition of a backyard garden or greenhouse, here are a few things for you to consider:
· The benefits which come from growing your own produce are numerous, but one of the most exciting aspects to consider is the fact that your greenhouse or garden will save you money. By cutting out the middle man and growing your food yourself, you can cut costs and save hundreds of dollars each year.
· Whether your yard is equipped with a lean to greenhouse or a standard backyard greenhouse, YOU will control the environment. Check out our greenhouse accessories--we will help you find everything you need to extend your garden's growing season and protect it from plant-destroying pests.
· In addition to saving money and controlling your garden's environment, eating homegrown produce will provide you with a number of health benefits. Studies have shown that children who are served homegrown produce on a daily basis are more likely to eat their needed servings of fruits and veggies each day. That is not to mention the nutritional benefits of eating organic fruits and veggies, which have not been affected by pesticides and herbicides.
· For all of you moms out there, another important factor to consider is that the work and attention required for maintaining your backyard greenhouse makes for wholesome family time. Upkeeping a garden requires a lot of outdoor activity. Planting, watering, and harvesting add to the process of keeping your family active and healthy.
The list of benefits goes on, and hopefully you can see just how useful a backyard garden can be. If you are unsure how to get started on the process of adding a greenhouse to your backyard, or if you are looking for the supplies to help you make the transition from a hobby gardener to a serious gardener , you have come to the right place.
