“And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it,” —Genesis 2:15. Soon after God created Adam, He put him into a garden and gave him a job to do. Adam was to dress it, which means to till it, and to care for it.
Some might wonder why we would want to garden today when we have an abundance of grocery stores stocked full of food. Gardening is very thrifty and quite educational. Except for purchasing seeds (and you can learn to save seeds from one harvest to the next planting season), the cost of the vegetables and fruit is strictly labor. All they require is time and effort. Freshly grown produce is more tasty and usually more nutritious than commercial produce. The foods grown in our garden can even be preserved by canning, dehydrating, or freezing them.
It is an enriching, educational experience to garden, and it is also great fun! There is nothing like reaping crops that you have nurtured yourself.
