Cooking vegetables from your own garden is a great experience. In the same way that you appreciate a meal made from scratch more than a frozen dinner or takeout, cooking food that you grew yourself is an extremely rewarding feeling. Aside from being delicious, growing your own food can help you save money, waste less food, consume less plastic packaging (helping the environment), and try out new recipes you normally wouldn't. When it comes to planting vegetables for cooking, however, there's more to it than simply tossing some seeds in your garden. Here's how to get the most out of growing your own vegetables for use on the dinner table.

Plant smart

One of the first mistakes beginner gardeners make is planting the wrong vegetables or the wrong proportions of vegetables. One or two squash plants, for example, will provide ample amounts of squash for most small families. So, think about the meals you love to cook and what vegetables they require. Then find out how much those plants yield. Some vegetables can be planted and harvested at many times throughout the growing season. If you eat lots of leafy greens (lettuce, spinach, kale, etc.), don't plant a huge row all at once. Instead, plant in intervals of two or three weeks so you can reap the rewards throughout the season. Similarly, many lettuces (such a romaine) are able to be continually harvested--that means there's no need for pulling the whole planet out of the ground and replanting.

Plan your meals

To get the most out of your garden plan a weekly menu that incorporates items from your garden. If your tomatoes look like they're ripening, plan for making tomato sauce, pizza, or caprese sandwiches the following week. Get creative with recipes. If you have a surplus of peppers, try different stuffed pepper recipes. The internet is your best friend when it comes to discovering new uses for surplus vegetables.

Preserving

A garden should be useful to you year-round, not just during the autumn harvest season. There are several methods of preserving your vegetables. The way you choose depends on your own need. Common means of preservation include:
  • Freezing meals. Remember those stuffed peppers? You don't have to eat them every day of the week once your peppers are ripe. Cook up some rice, beans, and sauce, stuff your peppers and bake. Eat however much you want and place the rest in airtight bags in the freezer. They'll make great lunches for when you're in a rush.
  • Blanching and steaming.  If you're not quite sure how you'll want to use your vegetables but you know you'll use them later blanching and steaming are great options. Boil or steam them for five minutes then toss them into a bucket of ice-water to cool. Once cool, drain them and freeze them in bags.
  • Canning.  This method takes some preparation and research but canning is a great way to save fruits and vegetables for use throughout the year and are great if you don't have extra space in your freezer for frozen vegetables.

Sleep helps to keep brain cells healthy. A good night of sleep helps with weight loss, mood and energetic balance. If you've ever struggled to get or stay asleep, then woke groggy and lethargic, you know just how much sleep impacts your day.

What's keeping you away from a good night sleep?

Willpower alone may not always lead you into restful sleep. Relaxation is too much a key to healthy sleep, especially deep and REM sleep for willpower to be enough to keep you in a restful sleep night after night.

Another thing that isn't enough to get you to fall and stay asleep every night is the desire to experience a good night sleep. Just wanting to sleep isn't enough. It won't do the trick. In fact, desire for sleep, combined with willpower and wakefulness can easily create frustration, more wakefulness and insomnia.

If it isn't desire for better sleep and willpower that's keeping you up at night, maybe staring at the ceiling, what's keeping you up? Here are a few things that could be keeping you away from enjoying better sleep at home:

  • Outside light - If your bedroom is located near an outdoor porch light, that porch light might be keeping you awake.
  • Indoor light - Bathroom safety lights prevents slips and falls. They can also keep homeowners up at night. Consider turning down your bathroom safety lights or installing a dimmer light bulb in the light holder. See if you don't start to sleep better.
  • Television noise - Your favorite television show might come up around the same time that you head to bed. Be sleepy enough and you might drift into sleep while the show is still on. After an hour or so of sleeping, light emitting from your bedroom television could awaken you.
  • Unresolved issues - Incomplete work projects, unfinished school assignments and relationship challenges can keep you up at night. Instead of falling and staying asleep, you might lay in bed trying to figure out how to close loose ends on these open items. Do yourself a favor and close out important issues during the day. Make a list of items that you are going to focus on in the morning and let them go. You really do need to get a good night of sleep.
  • Temperature - If it's too hot or too cold, you might only sleep lightly or not at all.
  • Bedtime schedule - An erratic bedtime schedule can make it hard for your brain to get accustomed to drifting into sleep at a certain time.
  • Health - Sleep apnea, a cold, the flu and other health issues can make it tough to get and stay asleep. So too can medications.

More on sleeping better at home

Change what's keeping you up at night and you just might start to sleep better and longer. For example, you might have to change the lighting in your bedroom or above the window outside your bedroom. Reducing noise is another step that you may have to take.

Altering your daily routine may also be in order. Before you take this step, review your schedule. Pay attention to how suggestions listed in this article influence your sleep. Be open to continuing to change your bedroom and your lifestyle until it gets easier for you to fall and stay asleep.
