Picture of river bank planted with beds of growing vegetables, and trees, including one Ginkgo Tree in autumn colors.


Growing vegetables in the garden is not unusual for Chinese families and when needed, any suitable ground is used to provide a supply of fresh vegetables. Even small beds in the garden are used for growing vegetables, as we saw when we visited the home of a Chinese grandma holding a young grandson in her arms. There are many advantages in growing vegetables in a garden, one being freshness. If the vegetables are in season they can be picked, cooked, and eaten with ease. They were not bought in a supermarket; the vegetables had not travelled from a far distant country, to be sold in the shops. Growing vegetables in a garden can be very satisfying, not only for hunger, but for self pride, and to be able to say, ''I grew these myself!"
