“When the fruits and vegetables come from your own backyard you know its safe,” says Mike the Gardener Enterprises, LLC owner Mike Podlesny. “When you grow your own food you know what goes into the soil, because you control every factor into producing it.”
To date the latest E. Coli epidemic has killed 31 people and sickened over 3,000 people. The early indication as to its cause are bean sprouts although that has not been confirmed.
“To the best of my knowledge I have never heard of anyone who has suffered from E. Coli resulting from foods grown in one’s own backyard,” continues Podlesny whose company operates the Seeds of the Month Club (http://seedsclub.averagepersongardening.com) which reduces the cost of seeds to help more people get involved in home vegetable gardening.
Podlesny, a 3rd generational home vegetable gardener, has been home vegetable gardening since he was a kid. “Many people are so disconnected from the food they eat that outbreaks like these should not surprise anyone. You would never spray a chemical on your tomato plants, harvest them, then feed them to your family, but that’s what happens all the time.”
As the World Health Organization and other International officials scramble to find out what is causing the latest E. Coli outbreak, home vegetable gardeners say they are sitting back and relaxing, enjoying safe food.
