Saving money, staying healthy, and being environmentally conscious. Three aspects of life that don’t always go hand in hand, but three things that we’re all trying to achieve. A way to help with the weekly shopping bill, help us eat better food and be more eco-friendly is to grow your own vegetables.
Tiger Sheds, have created an infographic showing how you can save money by growing your own vegetables for your weekly Sunday Roast. We can see how in comparison to buying vegetables from a supermarket and eating at a carvery every week, the savings are really worthwhile. You don’t have to have a massive garden to do this; you could make room for a small vegetable patch, or even rent an allotment to really make the most out of your gardening.
Not only do you save money, you will get the satisfaction of growing and eating your own produce! The infographic shows that the savings you can make over a year are good and that’s just based on growing enough vegetables for one meal a week for a family of four.
Growing vegetables is something you can get the whole family involved in - the produce will definitely taste better when you know you've put the hard work into growing it yourself. So run to your potting sheds and get growing!
