Fruits of Your Labor.
Lots of folks are saying no to large supermarket chains in favor of locally grown (read fresher and healthier) products. But if you’re looking for the ultimate in freshness, take your gathering even closer to home—like your own backyard—and grow a few items of your own.
Not that you should transmutate into Mr. Green Jeans or anything. Depending on your home climate, start with one apple or orange tree and see how it goes. Or gopher up some of that award-winning grass and plant a small vegetable garden.
No yard to speak of? There must be some space on that rooftop garden for one tree or a few veggies. A window box filled with fresh herbs can fit anywhere, even in a small apartment.
A little hard work and you’ll have the freshest good eats imaginable (and a whole new appreciation for farmers).
