Have you ever taken a bite out of a homegrown tomato and noticed that it is much tastier than the ones you would usually buy at the store? A lot of people make this realization but only a few of them have the courage and willingness to start growing their own produce. With that in mind, we've collected some of the most convincing reasons why you should choose to eat food grown in your own backyard or at a local farm.

1. Shorter path to your table. With store bough food, days and even weeks might pass from the moment it is picked to the moment it reaches your home, losing precious nutrients along the way. 

2. Better taste, better freshness. The superior taste of homegrown fruits and vegetables has to do with their freshness. Growing your own food also gives you complete control over which (if any) pesticides and fertilizers are used.

3. Good for you and for your environment. Gardening is not only a good outdoor physical activity, it will also has a positive environmental impact as no fuel is used for the transportation of the goods from the producer to the consumer.

4. When keeping a garden is not possible. If you can't have your own garden or make daily trips to your local farmer, technology can offer a solution. Look for a fridge with smart features that mimic natural conditions as much as possible. For example, Gorenje fridge freezers have the special VitaLight, which allows the ripening process to continue and ensures it stays fresh as if straight from the garden.
