When I lived in the country outside of Little Rock, I really enjoyed growing my own produce. I never used any pesticides and the tomatoes, potatoes, lettuce, green beans, corn, watermelons, cantaloupes, peas, and spinach were some of the best I've had. It was fun to grow some heirloom tomatoes and watermelons like "Moon & Stars" or grow purple potatoes. Fun times.
Past - Victory gardens in the U.S. produced a staggering 40% of the food supply. The Victory garden campaign resulted in 5 million gardens tended by over 20 million Americans, providing over $1.2 billion in food by the end of WWII. (JB, Bardot, 2012)
