Why garden with vegetable plants? In today’s world, there is great concern over what is on the vegetables that you eat. More and more consumers are on the lookout for organic vegetables. But buying organic vegetables at the market can be expensive, and you can never be 100 percent sure if you are getting what is advertised. When you grow your own vegetables, you can be sure they will be 100 percent fresh and unblemished by chemicals or additives.
Peppers, from the red bell pepper plant to the jalapeno pepper plant, are popular choices, but the most popular choice, especially for those just starting out with vegetable plants in their garden, are tomato plants. Planting tomatoes has a long and interesting history in the United States. It is believed that for much of the 18th century, tomatoes, while they were grown, were not eaten, as they were believed to be poisonous. Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, ate tomatoes in Paris and ended up growing his own tomatoes to eat, which may have been the beginning of their popularity in this country. Now of course, few salads or sandwiches are created without the addition of some variety of the tomato.
