There's no cheaper way to eat than to grow your own food. Growing vegetables and herbs is fun, rewarding and provides fresh and nutritious food for you and your family. If you don't have an area to garden, you can grow many herbs and even some vegetables, like tomatoes, right in your kitchen if there's a sunny spot. Or invest in a few containers for your porch. You can either start your garden from seed or pay a little extra for small, established plants. This is also a great way for your family to spend time together and a good opportunity to teach your children about nutrition. Keep the garden small and manageable and you can count on your kids giving you some help.
