Answers To Our Community Poll Ending Sept. 30

Our Community Poll at goGardenNow.com asked the question, "If you are growing more fruits or vegetables this year, are you doing so primarily because:
  • It helps to stretch the grocery budget?
  • Home-grown food is better for you?
  • Fruit and vegetable gardening is pleasurable?
  • Fruit and vegetable gardening is educational?"
71% of respondents said they are growing more fruits or vegetables because it helps to stretch the grocery budget.  29% of respondents said they do so because fruit and vegetable gardening is pleasurable.

No respondents answered that they grow fruit and vegetables because they are better for you or that fruit and vegetable gardening is educational.  Very interesting, indeed.  Of course, this is not a scientific survey, but only reflects the opinions of a select group.

Our current Community Poll asks the question, "During the present economic downturn, do you view gardening in general as:
  • An unnecessary expense?
  • A necessary expense?
  • An inexpensive pleasure?
  • An expensive pleasure, but worth it?"
Let us know what you think.  Go to goGardenNow.com, navigate away from the Home Page; our Customer Testimonials page is as good as any.  You'll find the Community Poll in the right hand column.  We look forward to hearing from you!
