These are all very relevant organic gardening questions and their answers to all of the comments above are all very revealing, here follows a potted version of their response:

Growing your own vegetables is a great idea to plan for early in the year, and can bring many rewards.

The physical activity of gardening, along with being outside and eating more vegetables will help improve your health.

Gardening has been shown to improve physical, emotional and spiritual well-being; research shows that working with plants and the soil, spending time outdoors in nature and taking walks in the woods all increase feelings of well-being, as well as reduce blood pressure.

Growing your own vegetables is a physical undertaking, however, there are a number of steps involved to make it successful.

For those who have never gardened before, I suggest research and planning before jumping in with the shovel and hoe.

A location must be selected that is suitable for a garden plot, accessible to water, and accessible to you — if it is too far away or not convenient, the garden is less likely to be tended to and harvested on a regular basis.

Sometimes it is best to start with container gardens on your patio to gain the benefits of gardening and fresh vegetables, while you are trying to locate a suitable, larger garden plot.

Organic gardening is more labor intensive, but for many it is the only way to go.

Using organic methods does not certify the produce for sale as “organic,” though.

So if you are planning on selling vegetables organically, you would need to certify your land and all inputs as “organic” through the USDA. It is a lengthy, complicated and expensive process that is only worth it if you are selling more than $5,000 a year.
