Vegetables and flowers were chosen for their usefulness and intermixed in one garden, a cottage garden, that was often in the front yard. Lovers of gardening, nevertheless, still manage to find time from their busy schedule to spend some quality time with their plants. Life in the city has become so hectic these days that it’s impossible to just stop and take a breather. Being a hard working professional, one often does not get the time to pursue one’s hobby as passionately as he or she would like.
There was a time when people simply had a garden. Now vegetable gardens can be just as creative and attractive as ornamental flower gardens. Why not create a conversation piece as well as a productive little vegetable patch? The drawers are deep enough to grow most vegetables and there’s even room for a small tomato cage. However, for someone who loves to spend hours tending to their garden – watering the plants, disinfecting them, supplying best quality nourishment to the soil – a hobby like gardening is quite time consuming. Vegetable gardens come in all shapes and sizes.
Some hobbies may not take too much of your time. A garden is the main attraction of your property. But, it does not need to be all ornamental because there are varieties of plants that can be planted in your garden. And the best way to make use of your garden is by planting vegetables on one part of it. It’s easy to envy those with an easy access to the flat roof or the backyard of the house they live in. But, if you live in a society building, where the roof and the back backyard is way out of your reach, it seems like a distant dream to have a garden to your name.
