54. Grow Your Own Food

Converting part of your backyard or front garden into a fruit and vegetable patch is quite easy - and it's great fun to bring in your own harvest and cook it!

With your library card you have access to numerous garden books that will tell you how to plant and grow stuff.

A packet of seed costs usually less than a dollar, and presents you with dozens of cabbages, bags full of runner beans and sacks full of tomatoes.

And you'll know exactly what's in the stuff you're eating.

Freshly harvested food tastes zillion times better than bought stuff, too.
