If you have tried switching from supermarket fruits and veggies to FARMERS market fruits and veggies, you know it’s something you can’t take back. Once you make the switch to fresh, locally grown, and unmodified by corporations, the food is sweeter, riper, crunchier, and juicier. However, I have struggled affording food this way as it does come with a higher price tag, especially here in San Diego. I am a huge fan of growing what you can in your own garden! It saves you money, can be done with little space, and it lets you know exactly what goes in what you cook! Even if you live in a small apartment like me, some can be grown in a planter box, or you can even just start with an herb garden!
