New Tropical Backyard Plants – Growing a number of the meals that your family consumes is a great way to save money and eat organically on a budget. As food costs continue to move up, more families turn into backyard farming as a way to access high quality food without breaking the bank.
Food price concerns and the desire for high quality meals has fueled the rise of yard farming. There are an estimated 20 million acres of lawns in North America. We invest tens of thousands of dollars a year developing a mono-crop (grass) and pouring chemicals on it to make it greener and kill unwanted plants. If all of us farmed our lawns, even we’d greatly increase the availability of food and reduce food costs. This tendency of backyard farming is growing together with inventive homeowners.
