19 Nutrient-Rich Vegetables To Grow In Your Garden

There are many reasons to grow vegetables in your garden. First, you can harvest plenty with your garden. Homegrown veggies are super fresh and healthy as you care for them from seedling to harvesting. The other is that your garden serves the purpose it’s supposed to be. Many even build a vertical indoor garden if the outside does not have enough space for their favorite veggies. Some also grow veggies in beds and DIY containers to save space. To me, I just love eating what I grow. It’s a rewarding journey.
