grow your own food

If you can, do. From a pot of basil on the kitchen windowsill to an allotment to a small holding -do it. It's well worth it, for less food miles for steps towards self-sufficiency, for sharing with friends and family, for enjoying a glut if you are lucky, for the best taste, for the knowledge of what went into your produce and what happened to it next, for freshness- but most of all - because it is so satisfying to grow your own food.
