With rising nation-wide concerns about the presence of GMO’s and pesticides in crops, as well as concerns about food cost, more and more people across the United States are gaining an interest in growing their own fruits and vegetables.

Is this going to be expensive? What kind of equipment will we need? What crops could we plant? Are there specific techniques to planting these crops?
