Times are financially tough for most of us. In this economic climate it certainly feels like every time you manage to save a few pennies another bill lands on the mat and puts you right back to square one.
Food is essential… we all need it but there are still many households that don’t bother to grow their own fruits and vegetables. Why? Generally it comes down to the lack of two things… time and experience. For those of you who fall into this category our advice is Find the Time and Learn How to Grow Your Own Food. Try and get the whole family involved – it is immensely satisfying eating something that you have grown and generally tastes a whole lot better than mass farmed produce. You also get a piece of mind knowing how your food was grown and nearly all home grown produce is done so organically.
