10 Mistakes You’re Making When Growing Your Own Food
Last year, we saw the return of the victory garden. As many people discovered the joy of growing their own food (is there anything better than biting into a BLT made with slices of juicy tomato and crisp lettuce leaves you've grown in your backyard?), it's no surprise gardening keeps getting more popular. A recent study by Axiom Marketing found that 86 percent of homeowners plan to continue gardening in 2021, with 47 percent saying they're planting more and expanding their garden this season.
To say you're gardening, however, doesn't mean you've necessarily mastered the art of growing your own food. If you aren't getting the quality or yields of produce you're expecting, you might be making some mistakes that are holding you back when it comes to growing your own food. We talked with three gardening experts to uncover what you're doing wrong and how to fix it. Cheers to a summer full of enjoying and sharing your fresh bounty.
