FROM THE SUPERMARKET TO THE KITCHEN OR FROM THE GARDEN TO THE KITCHEN?

Having a garden that is capable of providing us with all the vegetables that a family consumes is hard and laborious work, and we could even say complicated. It is difficult because over the years we have lost many work techniques that our grandparents knew and that served them to be served with fruits and vegetables throughout the year. What else could they do, there were no supermarkets in their rural life, and failure was paid for with hunger. Today, we work a garden for pleasure rather than necessity, which is not bad and that indicates that the bad times are over, with the assurance that if we fail, the supermarket will always be open to welcome us with its gigantic and colorful vegetables , all the same and perfect.

Having a garden in the 21st century brings us many things apart from having fresh food.

A very important task when we have a garden is to provide organic or inorganic matter to our plants, so that they recover the nutrients that they have lost when producing the harvest. The soil, in most cases, is exhausted, the result of years and years of cultivation, so we must periodically contribute what is extracted to reach a balance.
