Be Your Own Greengrocer

Approximate $ Savings:
$30 a month
Growing my own vegies has saved me at least $30 a month. I went to the fruit and veggie market and they gave me some timber crates for free which I lined with a weed matting and filled with a good quality potting mix. Than I got some seedlings for half price from the local nursery as they where nearing there time to be in the punnets. Once I planted them in the good potting mix, they were back on recovery within a day and I have continuing harvests of lettuce, tomatoes, capsicum, mint, oregano, broccoli and this will vary from week to week depending on what was on the half price selection stand. It is fantastic.
