Why are so many people running to their backyards for food? The store shelves are stocked to the brim with organic produce. Still, that moniker isn’t enough to keep people comfortable.
Instead, more and more people are growing their own food each year. This is a serious phenomenon. It has a lot to do with the fact that people want to be in touch with their food. They want to know what they are putting in their bodies.
ITs not long before you realize that the backyard garden is full of worms and bugs that like your produce just as much as you do. However, the whole point of the home garden is to avoid using pesticides. So you have to be careful about what you put on those plants.
That is where the ladybugs come in.

Gardening is essential both to preparedness and to a healthy lifestyle. There is just nothing like it!
