Having Your Own Backyard Vegetable Garden for Fresh Vegetables Along With a Backyard Chicken Flock Is Good for Your family and the Environment.
A Little History
People have long known that certain plants and vegetables were good to eat. But way back when, we were mostly doing the hunting and gathering thing and didn't quite have the whole domesticating animals and growing crops thing down like we do now.
As time went on we learned how to successfully domesticate animals like chickens (Chickens are believed to have been domesticated over 8000 years ago.) as well as how to successfully plant and grow vegetables to feed our families.
This was a very good thing since we were now more in control of our food sources which made us way more self-sufficient. We no longer had to follow the herds or go looking for food anymore, we had a ready source that consistently available, nice!
Back to the Future
We’re now at the stage where many families can have their own small backyard flock of chickens and backyard vegetable garden to help supply their families’ nutritional needs with fresh meat, organic eggs and vegetables.
We think there are a lot of great reasons why growing your own vegetables in your own garden are a great idea.
We think doing it along with raising your own backyard flock is an even better idea since they are both good for the environment.
Also, chicken manure is an excellent, organic fertilizer for backyard gardens which will help you to get big, healthy vegetables and save you money since you won’t need to be buying expensive commercial fertilizers.
