In Britain, there has been a surge in the number of people over the past years growing their own fruit and vegetables, which according to the news editor derives them sense of satisfaction.
Marc Rosenberg, who is the News Editor at Amateur Gardening Magazine, says that people feel it good, when they grow their food on their own and they feel contented with its taste.
"To grow vegetables which you can harvest and enjoy with your family is a great benefit", he said.
The rise in the cultivation of fruits and vegetables at home has been contributed by the brunt of economic downturn and people's concerns regarding the sources of foods and use of pesticides.
Another factor the editor noted is the increase in the availability of variety of pest and disease-resistant plants using allotments have attracted many people to adopt self-farming. Growing food on their own does not only provide monetary benefits to people, but also gives them sheer delight.
The findings of a recent study by Mintel concluded that one in five consumers in the UK is indulging in self-farming. People in London have started renting flats in order to carry out their love for gardening. Also, waiting list for allotments has expanded by 20% in the current year.Quote this article on your site
