4 Easy Things You Should Plant Right Now

Research has shown that fruit and berries grown organically have much better vitamin and mineral content than store-bought. You and your health can immediately benefit from this fact by planting some fruits and berries in your back plot right now, or at least ordering them.  Here is an article and a study showing how much better organically grown (home-grown) can be for you.

You can order right now from a reputable plant nursery and they will deliver the plants to you at just the right time for planting during the season. Some things can be planted now, the rest can be made comfortable on your estate in the spring.

In no other way can you take control of what you and your family eat than by actually planting and growing your own food. Believe me, I'm pretty busy being a full-time , father, doctor, county commissioner; you do have time to do this!
