TREASURE VALLEY, Idaho — While any retail stores are seeing major customer slowdowns, some are seeing a steady stream of people who want to be more self-sufficient. These uncertain times have sparked a new interest in people learning how to grow a vegetable garden.
Zamzows is a local homegrown garden supply center and can help you develop your own green thumb. With layoffs and store closures, gardening can be a cost-effective way to get health food and avoid crowded grocery stores.
"When you know where your food comes from, it gives you peace of mind. That gives you peace of mind for yourself and for your family," said Nolan Guthrie, Zamzows marketing manager.
Nothing tastes better than a tomato pulled from your own garden. A lot of plants, like lettuce and radishes, can be harvested multiple times a year.
