I have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen – making my roasted tomato, pasta sauce in bulk.
All ingredients in my sauce were sourced within a 30 kilometer radius from my home (except the pine nuts):
* Tomatoes and carrots from a local farmer
* Garlic from Little Field Mice Farm
* Basil and oregano from my garden
Do you rely 100% on supermarkets for your food?
Or are you one of the increasing numbers of people taking control of their own food sourcing, growing and producing – their food security?
If you have never grown your own food, it is never too late to join the millions of home growers. My advice is to start with herbs or rockett lettuce (both will be kind to the beginner).
Data suggest that more than half (52 per cent) of all Australian households are growing some of their own food and a further 13 per cent report they intend to start.
What will you start growing today or what was the very first edible plant you grew?
