Groceries, believe it or not, are the absolute easiest place to cut back your expenses. So I figure, whatever you can grow, especially if it re-seeds itself, you don't have to pay for except when you buy the seeds. My husband raises a great big garden because that's what he loves to do. We also have fruit trees and berries.
This is so interesting. I never heard of Egyptian Walking Onions. Could you explain them a bit more. If they come back each year they must be a perennial and I never knew onions and mustard greens were perennials. I love this idea and would like to start some of these in my flower garden. Also would like your recipe for cottage cheese patties, sounds delicious! suerkeene AT earthlink.net
Growing your own food is amazing! You can start small and don't need a lot of space. You can use containers, which cuts down on pests and weeds, but may require more watering. I like growing a wide variety of peppers and tomatoes, which I incorporate into dinner almost every night. I also grow dill and cilantro. Cilantro seeds are easy to gather for a new crop.
I live at 6500 ft in So. Cal mountains. Growing season about 3 months. Love that some herbs are perennials, but have not managed to hang on to them through the winter. I have only tubs and pots, no real ground space for growing. If there are specific herbs or vegetables or methods, would love to know what you know! :)
