Do you love the idea of growing your own fruit and vegetables but don’t know where to start? Maybe you’re on a tight budget, so you think you can’t afford to ‘grow your own’? Or are your kids not keen to eat anything that hints of a vegetable? We all know we should be eating plenty of fruit and vegetables but buying them can be expensive, so my posts for the next few weeks will be about growing fruit and vegetables on a budget.
It’s surprisingly easy to grow your own food, even if you’ve only got a very small space or cash is limited. With a little ingenuity, you can find lots of ways to find seeds and plants for free (or very little!), avoid spending a fortune on pots and seed trays, and spending hours each day digging and weeding. And kids really love the idea of ‘growing your own’, which means it’s more likely they’ll try eating something new – which has to be good news, doesn’t it?
