You can't beat growing your own. If you don't have a garden, why not get an allotment?

if you are in the UK check out your local council. you might be surprised at how cheap they are.
We pay £75 per year (includes water rates) for a decent sized plot.

You get to grow your own, have a garden with somewhere nice to be in the summer and you get meet some great people and be a part of a great community.

Here are some pics of the food i harvested yesterday.
