As more and more Americans grow their own fruits and vegetables, NewsPrepper digs up some dirt on this DIY food revolution.
The U.S. has enjoyed a home-gardening renaissance in recent years, driven by concerns about health, nutrition and money — and a desire to get back to our roots. Whether you're starting a garden or just curious how yours compares, here's a behind-the-scenes look at gardening in America.

Most U.S. gardeners have at least some college education, and a slight majority are female. Regardless of their demographics, though, the country's home gardeners seem to be getting their money's worth: After collectively spending $2.5 billion on seeds, supplies and other upfront costs , American gardeners reaped a whopping $21 billion return on investment.
